In BGU III. 827.22 we have ἔπεχετῇ οἰκίᾳ μου, ἐκτίνασσε τὰ ἔρια καὶ τὰ ἱμά [τ ]ια, apparently as part of a ";spring cleaning"; : cf. P Fay 117.21 (A.D. 108) ἐ ̣κ ̣τίν ̣α ̣ξο ̣ν ̣ τὸ διειρον εἵνα ἀμέριμνος ἡ ̣ς ̣. The verb is used of ";making an upturn"; in connexion with a domiciliary visit to the Serapeum, P Par 35.11 (B.C. 163) τῶν τε φυλακιτῶν ἐκτε [νῶς ] ἐκτιναξάν [τω ]ν καὶ μηθὲν ἄτοπον π [αραλαβόντων : so ib. 37.12. A weaker sense appears in P Lond 1170 verso.8 (A.D. 258–9) (= III. p. 193) ἐκτινάσσοντες ἐπὶ μὲν τῷ ἐλαιῶνι, so.11 and cf. Preisigke 4369 b.20 f. (iii/B.C.). For the subst. see P Fay 114.22 (A.D. 100) μὴ ον (l. οὖν) ληρήσῃς τὸν ἐκτιναγμόν σου, ";don’t talk nonsense about your threshing"; (Edd.). It is used metaphorically in Nahum 2:11 ἐκτιναγμὸς καὶ ἀνατιναγμός, καὶ ἐκβραγμὸς καὶ καρδίας θραυσμός.
