Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Acts 10:23) is found in a petition of B.C. 241, P Petr II. 12(3).10 οὖ [ν ?] σε εἰσκαλέσασθαι ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐπισκεψάμενον ἃ διὰ τῆς ἐντεύξεως αὐτῶι ἐγκεκλήκαμεν, ἐπαναγκάσαι αὐτὸν τὸ δίκαιον ἡμῖν ὑποσχεῖν, ";(we ask you), therefore, to summon us and, having inquired into our charges against him, to force him to do us justice"; (Ed.) : cf. ib. III. 29(h ).5 ἀξι [ῶ σ ]ε ε ̣ι ̣̔̓σ κα [λε ]σ ̣άμενός [με ] ἐπισκέψασθαι περὶ ὧν κτλ. Like ἀνακαλέομαι, the verb seems to denote summoning by word of mouth, as distinguished from formal citation (παραγγέλλω) : see P Hamb I. p. 109 n..5, and for medical usage cf. Hobart, p. 219.
