Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κατακολουθέω is found in the NT (Luke 23:55, Acts 16:17) only in its literal sense, but for the derived meaning, as in LXX Daniel 9:10, we may compare P Tor I. 1ix. 26 (B.C. 117) καὶ αὐτοὶ κατακολουθήσαντες ταῖς ἐπενηνεγμέναις ὑπ᾽ αὐτῶν συγγραφαῖς, P Tebt I. 30.4 (B.C. 115) ὅπως εἰδὼς κατακολουθῇς τοῖς ἐπισταλμένοις, ib. 40.19 (B.C. 117) (= Selections, p. 28) κατακολουθεῖν τοῖς ἐξ ἀρχῆς ἐθισμοῖς, P Grenf II. 23.3 (B.C. 108?) κατακολουθήσας οὖν τοῖς διὰ τούτου σημαινομένοις, OGIS 329.3 (ii/B.C.) κατηκ [ο ]λουθηκότος ταῖς ἑκάστων αὐτῶν βουλήσεσιν. In P Lond 23(c).51 (B.C. 158—7) (= I. p. 39) a docket instructs the clerks to ";carry out"; a certain order—τοῖς γραμματεῦσιν κατακολουθῖν : cf. P Meyer 1.30 (B.C. 144). See also Laqueur Quaestiones, p. 25 f.
