Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The usage of κατέναντι (for form see Proleg. p. 99) c. gen. = ";opposite,"; ";over against,"; as in Mark 12:41; Mark 13:3 al., 1 Maccabees 2:41, is not so unknown to ";profane"; Greek, as Grimm-Thayer (s.v.) would lead us to suppose. Thus Rouffiac (Recherches, p. 34) quotes from Priene 37.170 (ii/B.C.) with reference to a treaty made—κατέναντι τοῦ ὄρευς, and in P Par 50.11 (B.C. 160) we read of a woman seated on the sand with a child—κατέναντι αὐτῆς : cf. also P Flor III. 370.7 (A.D. 132) κ [άταν ]τα Σαραπιήου. According to Wackernagel Hellenistica, p. 3 ff. (as quoted s.v. ἀπέναντι) the usage is due to Doric influence, and passed into the Κοινή about B.C. 300. The word survives in MGr.
