Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἀναστροφή, ἀναστροφῆς, (from the passive ἀναστρέφομαι, see the preceding word), properly, 'walk,' i. e. manner of life, behavior, conduct (German Lebenswandel): Galatians 1:13; Ephesians 4:22; 1 Timothy 4:12; James 3:13; 1 Peter 1:15, 18; 1 Peter 2:12; 1 Peter 3:1f, 16; 2 Peter 2:7; plural ἅγιαι ἀναστροφαι the ways in which holy living shows itself, 2 Peter 3:11. Hence, life in so far as it is comprised in conduct, Hebrews 13:7. (This word, in the senses given, is found in Greek writings from Polybius 4, 82, 1 down; in the Scriptures first in Tobit 4:14; 2 Macc. 5:8; add Epictetus diss. 1, 9, 5; 4, 7, 5 (and (from Sophocles Lexicon, under the word) Agatharchides 134, 12; 153, 8; Aristeas 16).)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The somewhat formal use of ., with the meaning ";behaviour, conduct,"; is not balanced by occurrences in colloquial papyri : an edict of Caracalla (A.D. 215) has the word—ἔτι τε καὶ ζω [ ] δεικνύει ἐναντία ἔθη ἀπὸ ἀναστ ̣ροφῆς [πο ]λειτικῆς εἶναι ἀγροίκους Α [ ]γυπτίους (PGiss I. 40ii. 28). Bp E. L. Hicks’s pioneer paper in CR i. (1887), p. 6, drew attention to the inscriptional use of the term : he noted the frequency of its association with words like πάροικοι and παρεπίδημοι, a curious parallel to 1 Peter 2:11 f. Kälker Quaest., p. 301 says ";apud Polybium primum accipit notionem se gerendi,"; quoting iv. 82.1 κατὰ τ. λοιπὴν ἀ. τεθαυμασμένος, and referring to three inscrr. with . ποιεῖσθαι. This last phrase however occurs in five Doric inscrr. of ii/B.C., to look no further than Syll (314.24, 654.19, 663.9, 718.4, 927.21), as well as in the Attic inscr. cited by Kälker (l.c.) (CIA 477 b 12); so that we may safely assume that the locution had become widely current in the Κοινή before Polybius used it. Apart from . ποιεῖσθαι as a periphrasis for ἀναστρέφεσθαι, we can quote Syll 491.5 κατά τε τὰν ἐμπειρίαν καὶ τὰν ἄλλαν ἀνα [σ ]τροφάν, and 663.14 . ἔχειν (as in 1 Peter 2:12)—both ii/B.C. The Index to OGIS has ";ἀναστροφήpassim."; In view of this frequency, and the plentiful record of ἀναστρέφεσθαι, the absence of the noun from papyri is rather marked. It may only mean that it was not current in Egypt.
