P Lond 43.1 (ii/B.C.) (= I. p. 48, Chrest, I. p. 162) πυνθανομένη μανθάνειν σε Αἰγύπτια γράμματα συνεχάρην σοι καὶ ἐμαυτῆι, ";on hearing that you are learning Egyptian letters I congratulated you and myself,"; BGU IV. 1125.10 (B.C. 13) μεμαθηκότα ̣ς ̤ τὴν προκιμένη (ν) τέχνην ἐ ̣π ̣ι ̣μ ̣ε ̣λ ̣ω ̣ς, P Ryl II. 235.12 (ii/A.D.) ἀλλὰ οὐ πρώτως σου τὸ εἰκαῖον μανθάνομεν, ";but it is not the first time we learn your heedlessness"; (Edd.). For the punctiliar μαθεῖν, ";ascertain,"; as in Acts 23:27, Galatians 3:2, cf. ib. 77.42 (A.D. 192) ἐμάθομεν τὸν Ἀχιλλέα προβαλόμενον ἑαυτὸν εἰς ἐξηγ (ητείαν) ἀπόντων ἡμῶν, ";we have learned that Achilles in our absence put himself forward for the office of exegetes"; (Edd ), P Oxy VII. 1067.6 (iii/A.D.) μάθε οὖν ὅτι ἀλλοτρίαν γυναῖκαν ἐκληρονόμησεν αὐτόν, ";know then that a strange woman is made his heir"; (Ed.), ib. XIV. 1671.20 (iii/A.D.) γράψον οὖν ἵνα τὴν διαταγὴν μάθω, ";write therefore, that I may learn the order"; (Edd.), P Tebt II. 417.24 (iii/A.D.) μάθε τοῦ Μώρου, ";find out from Morus."; The form ἐμάθαμεν (cf. Moulton Proleg. p. 51) is found in P Oxy VII. 1032.25 (A.D. 162). On the difficult 1 Timothy 5:13, where μανθάνω is practically pass. of διδάσκω, see Moulton Proleg. p. 229 : cf. Field Notes, p. 210. With 2 Timothy 3:7 we may compare Epict. i. 29. 35 ἤθελον ἔτι μανθάνειν, ";I would fain go on learning."; MGr μαθαίνω has lost the nasal : the aor. stem has prevailed over the present, but cf. also the disappearance of the ν from the MGr ἄθρωπος.
