Middle voice from G5259 and G2919

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ὑποκρίνομαι;

1. to take up another's statements in reference to what one has decided for oneself (middle κρίνομαι), i. e. to reply, answer (Homer, Herodotus, others).

2. to make answer (speak) on the stage, i. e. to personate anyone, play a part (often so from Demosthenes down). Hence,

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the connexion of this name (Phm. 1:1) with Phrygia it is enough to refer to the legend of Philemon and Baucis : see Lightfoot Colossians2 , p. 304. For other exx. of the name cf. P Hib I. 70 (a).8 (B.C. 229–8), P Oxy I. 43 versoiv. 5 (A.D. 295), and from the inscrr. Magn 117.8 where it is the title of the ἄππας of Dionysus, and Perg 3414 Φιλη ̣ μων῎ Ανθου σκουτλάριος (both cited by Thieme, p. 41).
