Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb is capable of general use, as in P Oxy VII. 1066.18 (iii/A.D.) ἀναζήτησον [ῥίνην ] ";look for a file."; But it is specially used of searching for human beings, with an implication of difficulty, as in the NT passages. So P Hib I. 71.9 (B.C. 245–4) τὴν πᾶσαν σπουδὴν ποίησαι ὅπ [ως ἀνα ]ζητηθέντες ἀποσταλῶσι, ";make every effort to search for them"; etc. with reference to certain slaves who had deserted. P Rein 1713 (B.C. 109) has nearly the same phrase : cf. Syll 220.18 (iii/B.C.) ex suppl., P Flor I. 83.12 (iii/iv A.D.) ἀναζητηθέντα ἀναπεμφθήσεσθαι πρὸς τὸν κράτιστον ἐπίτροπον. P Tebt I. 138 (late ii/B.C.) ἀναζητούμενος Ὀννῶφρις οὐχ εὑρίσκεται, ib. 53.22 (B.C. 110) οἱ εὐθυνόμενοι ἀναζητηθ ̣[ ]ντες, ";the culprits having been searched for."; For the noun ἀναζήτησις, cf. P Fay 107.9 (A.D. 133) ποήσασθαι τὴν καθήκουσαν ἀναζήτησιν, ";to hold the due inquiry,"; P. Tebt II. 423.12 (early iii/A.D.) πρ [ὸς ] ἀναζήτην (l. -ησιν) χόρτου, ";to look for hay,"; and P Ryl II. 78.32 (A.D. 157) περὶ ἀναζητήσεως Πάνθηρος.
