Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Montgomery (Exp VIII. ix. p. 357) translates διαπλεύσαντες in Acts 27:5 ";having run across the gulf"; between Cilicia and Pamphylia, and notes that the verb ";probably implies that at this point a favourable shift of wind enabled them to make a straight course across a stretch of open water (πέλαγος) instead of hugging the shores of the bight."; The verb occurs with the same object in Kaibel 642.13 (iii/iv A.D.) καὶ πέλαγος διέπλε [υ ]σε : see also LS.
