Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(I) ";meet with,"; ";encounter,"; as in Luke 9:37 al., P Lille I. 6.6 (iii/B.C.) συναντήσαντες (corrected from συναντες) τινές μοι ἔξω τῆς κώμης, P Cairo Zen I. 59056.3 (B.C. 257) εἰς Καῦνον συνήντησεν ὅ τε πατήρ σου καὶ οἱ ἀδ [ελφοί, ib. II. 59179.9 (B.C. 255) οἱ [συ ]νταξάμενοι (";those who agreed to appear";) οὐ σονήντησαν ἐπὶ τὴν [κρίσιν, P Lille I. 13.2 (B.C. 244–3) ὁ παρὰ Νίκωνος σιτολόγος οὐ συναντῶν (";ne se trouvant pas là";), PSI IV. 438.25 (iii/B.C.) διὸ οὐ συναντῶσιν, and P Hamb I. 25.11 (B.C. 238) ἀνακληθεὶς οὖν Κάλας τέτακται συναντήσ ̣εσθαι πρὸς σέ, and similarly.16.

(2) ";happen,"; ";befall,"; as in Acts 20:22, PSI IV. 392.1 (B.C. 242–1) εἰ ἔρρωσαι καὶ τἆλλά σοι κατὰ τρόπον συναντᾶι, and .10 συναντήσηι ἡμῖν τὰ παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως κατὰ λ <όγ >ον : cf. Syll 279 (= .3601).14 (B.C. 193) ἐκ τῆς συναντωμένης ἡμεῖν εὐμενείας διὰ ταῦτα παρὰ τοῦ δαιμονίου.

Συναντάω does not seem to appear in Roman times, but καταντάω is common (e.g. P Tebt I. 59.3—B.C. 99). See Anz Subsidia, p. 277 f. For the double compd. συναπαντάω, cf. PSI VI. 689.9 (v/A.D.) π [ρ ]ο ̣ς ̣ σε σ ̣υ ̣ν ̣α ̣παντῆσαι ἅμα ταῖ [ς ] ἄλλαις ἐργάταις.

The subst. συνάντημα (lit. = ";occurrence";), which in Exodus 9:14 is used to translate the Heb. word for ";plague,"; is found in the same sinister sense in the magic P Leid Wxviii. 4 (ii/iii A.D.) οὐ δαιμόνιον, οὐ συνάτημα (l. συνάντημα), οὐδὲ ἀλλό τι τῶν καθ᾽ Ἅιδου πονηρόν, and in the Christian amulet P Iand 6.16 (v/vi A.D.) πονηρὸν συ [[υ ]]νάντημα, see the editor’s note.
