Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To Deissmann’s examples of this word (BS p. 229) = ";remittere,"; ";to send up to a higher authority,"; as in Luke 23:7, Acts 25:21, add P Hib I. 57.1 (B.C. 247), Syll 177.51, .107 (end of iii/B.C.), OGIS 194.28 (i/B.C.), ib. 329.51 (ii/B.C.), Priene 111.147 (i/B.C.) περὶ ὧν ὁ στρατηγὸς Λεύκιος Λε [υκίλιος ἔγραψεν ] καὶ ἀνέπεμψεν [πρὸς τὴν σ ]ύγκλητον, P Tebt I. 7.7 (B.C. 114), ib II. 287.6 (A.D. 161–9) ἐνέτυχον τῷ ἡγεμόνι καὶ ἀνέπεμψεν αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ Κρασσὸν τὸν κράτιστον [ἐπιστράτηγ ]ον, ";they appealed to the prefect, who referred them to his highness the epistrategus Crassus"; (Edd.), ib. 594 (iii/A.D.) a warrant for arrest, al. Similarly the phrase ἐξ ἀναπομπῆς is used of the ";delegation"; of a case from one authority to another, e.g.BGU I. 19.2 (A.D. 135), CPR 18.2 (A.D. 124) : see further Archiv iii. p. 74. For the alternative meaning ";to send back"; (Luke 23:15, Philemon 1:12). Cf. P Par 13.22 (B.C. 157) οὐκ ἀναπέμψαντες τὴν φερνήν, P Oxy VII. 1032.50 (A.D. 162) ἀνέπεμψεν καὶ τοῦτο ἐπί σε.
