Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This favourite Lukan word (cf. Hobart, p. 212) hardly needs illustration, but we may cite P Ryl II. 119.32 (A.D. 54–67) κατελθεῖν εἰ [ς ] τὸν διαλογισμόν, ";to go down to the assize,"; P Fay 123.8 (c. A.D. 100) οὐκ ἠδυνήθην κατελθεῖν, ";I was unable to come down,"; ib. 131.10 (iii/iv A.D.) [ ]ν τὸ ὕδωρ κατέλθῃ πάσῃ προθυμίᾳ χρῆσαι ἔστ᾽ ἂν τὸ ὑδροστάσιον γεμισθῇ, ";if the water comes down, make every exertion until the basin is filled"; (Edd.). In P Flor II. 236.8 (AD. 267) ἕπονται δὲ καὶ τούτοις ἄλλοι καὶ ἀπὸ νυκτὸς κατέρχονται, the verb means little more than ";arrive.";
