Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With . used in the NT in the sense of the Attic καταπτύω, ";spit upon,"; as in Mark 10:34, cf. P Magd 24.7 (B.C. 218), where the words καὶ ἐνέπτυσεν εἰς τὸ πρόσω [πον have been inserted above the line : cf. Plut. Mor. 189A ἐνέπτυσεν. . εἰς τὸ πρόσωπον, and Herodas v. 76 καὶ τίς οὐκ ἀπαντῶσα ἔς μευ δικαίως τὸ πρόσωπον ἐμπτύοι; and see Rutherford NP p. 66. In Ev. Petr. 3 the verb is construed with the dat.—ἐνέπτυον αὐτοῦ ταῖς ὄψεσι.
