The only passage from profane literature which has as yet been cited for this verb, Plut. Moral. 968 CD, where an elephant is described as ";rehearsing"; by moonlight certain tricks it had been taught (πρὸς τὴν σελήνην ἀναταττόμενος τὰ μαθήματα καὶ μελετῶν), makes it probable that it is to be understood = ";bring together,"; ";repeat from memory"; in Luke 1:1 : see Blass Philology of the Gospels, p. 14 ff., and cf. Exp T xviii. p. 396. In OGIS 213.34 (iv/iii. B.C.) the hitherto unknown substantive ἀνατάκται is found as the designation of certain magistrates at Miletus, whom Dittenberger gathers to have been charged with disbursements to the authorities for their several public works.
