Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the literal use of προέρχομαι, ";go forward,"; ";advance,"; cf. P Leid Uii. 13 (B.C. 343) (= UPZ i. p. 371) ἕνα δὲ προελθόντα εἰς τὸ μέσον. The word is common in a more general sense like our ";come forward,"; e.g. P Oxy II. 286.14 (A.D. 82) τῆς δὲ Φιλουμένης παρ᾽ ἕκαστα διοχλούσης με προελθεῖν ἠνάγκασμαι, καὶ ἀξιῶ. . ., ";since Philumene is continually pressing me to repay, I have been forced to come forward and request you . . ."; (Edd.), ib. IX. 1203.18 (late i/A.D.) ὅθεν ἀναγκαίως προερχόμενοι ἀξιοῦμεν τὸ μὲν ὑπόμνημα ἔχειν ἐν καταχωρισμῷ, ";wherefore we perforce come forward with the request that this memorandum should be duly placed on record"; (Ed.), ib. I. 68.20 (A.D. 131) διαγεγον [ ]ναι ἄλλα ἔτη πέντε καὶ μὴ τεθαρρηκαίναι (l. τεθαρρηκέναι) τ [ὸν ] Θέωνα προελθεῖν, ";another five years elapsed without Theon having dared to bring forward his claim"; (Edd.). For the double compd. προαπέρχομαι, see P Cairo Zen I. 59016.4 (B.C. 259) ἔφθασεν δέ με προαπελθὼν Χάρμος.
