Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the antithesis with ἀποδημέω see the exx. cited under that word. Cf. further P Petr III. 53 (q).8 (iii/B.C.) ἐνεδήμει (in an imperfect context), P Oxy I. 56.15 (A.D. 211) βασιλικὸν γραμματέα μὴ ἐνδημεῖν, and from the inscrr. Syll 925.6 (B.C. 207) καὶ τοῦτοι συνδιεφύλαξαν τό τε ἱερὸν καὶ τὰν πόλιν καλῶς καὶ ἀσφαλῶς καὶ ἐνεδάμησαν εὐτάκτως, and similarly .17, also ib. 790.80 (i/B.C.) μηθενὶ ἐξεῖναι τῶν π [ολιτῶν μηδὲ τῶν παρ ]οικούντων μηδὲ τῶν ἐνδημούντων ξένω [ν δένδρα κόπτειν ἐν τῶ ]ι διασαφουμένωι τόπωι. For the subst. see OGIS 764.35 (ii/B.C.) ποιησα ]μένων τὴν ἐνδημίαν, and on the derivation of ἔνδημος from ἐν δήμῳ (ὤν), ἐν being used distributively, see Proleg. p. 105.
