Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Note the perfect active ἀνατέθηκα in Syll 604.10 (Pergamon, end of iii/B.C.). This is a later example of what is now known to be the classical form of the perfect of τίθημι, which only in the Hellenistic age was replaced by τέθεικα. The late sense ";impart,"; ";communicate,"; with a view to consultation, found in the two NT occurrences of the word (Acts 25:14, Galatians 2:2; cf. 2 Maccabees 3:9) seems to appear in P Par 69D. .23 (A.D. 233) ἀναθέμενοι τὸ πρᾶγμα ἀκ [έραιον ]. In P Strass I. 41.7 (A.D. 250) ὥστε οὐκ ἂν ἔχοι ἀναθέσθαι τὴν δίκη [ν εἰς ἐτέραν ἡμέραν ] the verb = ";postpone."; The active = ";dedicate"; occurs everywhere.
