διακούω is common in the udicial sense, with gen. person. as in Acts 23:35.

A.D. 100) ἐπιστολὴν τοῦ ἡγεμόνος πρὸς Διονύσιν τὸν στρατηγὸν διακοῦσαι αὐτοῦ, P Giss I. 46.11 (time of Hadrian—petition to the Praefect) ἀξιοῦμέν σε τὸν τοῦ νομοῦ βοηθὸν διακοῦσαι ἡμῶν, BGU I. 168.28 (ii/iii A.D.) ὅθεν ἀξιῶ. . . διακοῦσαί μου πρὸς αὐτούς, P Lond 924.16 (A.D. 187–8) (= III. p. 135), etc. In Syll 929.29 (ii/B.C.) καὶ καθίσαντες ἐν τῷ ἱε [ρ ]ῶι τῆς Ἀρτέμιδος τῆς Λευκοφρυηνῆς διηκούσαμεν τῶν διαφερομένων, we have gen. rei.
