Pron., cf. X. Cyr. 6.2.25 with 6.1.14. with the reflexive ἑαυτοῦ, αὑτοῦ, etc., to add force and definiteness, αὐτὸς καθ' αὑτοῦ A. Th. 406; αὐτοὶ ὑφ' αὑτῶν ib. 194; αὐτοὶ καθ' αὑτούς X. Mem. 3.5.4; αὐτὸ καθ' αὑτό Pl. Tht. 201e; sts. between the Art. and reflex. Pron., τοῖς αὐτὸς αὑτοῦ πήμασιν βαρύνεται A. Ag. 836, cf. Pr. 762; τούς γ' αὐτὸς αὑτοῦ πολεμίους S.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The weakening of the old distinction between αὐτὸς ὁ and ὁ αὐτός , especially in Luke, is noted in Proleg. p. 91, and paralleled from Hellenistic. We may add (cf. Einleitung p. 145 f.) Syll 807.1 (ii/A.D.) αὐταῖς ταῖς ἡμέραις , where Dittenberger remarks ";expectaveris ταῖς αὐταῖς ,"; OG1S 383.14 (Antiochus of Commagene, i/B.C.) τὴν αὐτήν τε κρίσιν , for which Ditt. desiderates ταύτην τὴν κρίσιν , P Hib I. 39.6 (B.C. 265) αὐτὸς Ὧρος ";the said H.,"; P Lille I. 23.8 (B.C. 221) οὗ μ [ισ ]θωτὴς Ἡρώδ [ης ] ὁ αὐτός ";ce même H.,"; P Oxy VI. 892.3 (A.D. 338) τῆς αὐτῆς πόλεως , ib. VIII. 1119.8 (A.D. 254) τοῦ αὐτοῦ ἀμφοδογραμματέως ";the said a."; : all these seem to be practically identical, with αὐτός differing little from ἐκεῖνος . The combination αὐτὸ τοῦτο may be illustrated by P Grenf I. 1.14 (literary, ii/B.C.) ";for this reason"; (Ed.) as in 2 Peter 1:5, P Ryl II. 77.39 (A.D. 192) καὶ αὐτὰ ταῦτα ἀσφαλίσομαι ";I will certify these very facts"; (Edd.), P Oxy VIII. 1119.11 (see above) ὑπὲρ τοῦ μὴ καὶ τὸν νυνεὶ φύλαρχον δοκεῖν ἀγνοεῖν αὐτὰ ταῦτα [. . .

For the phrase ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό = ";together,"; as apparently in Luke 17:35, see P Tebt I. 14.20 (B.C. 114), where the ";total"; value of certain property is one talent of copper—ἀξίας ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ χα (λκοῦ ) (ταλάντου ) α ̄ : cf. II. 319.9 (A.D. 248) ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ (ἄρουραι ) ι ̄ε ̄, ";a total of 15 arourae,"; 336.10 (c. A.D. 190), al. This arithmetical use may be applied in Acts 2:47, if we may render ";was daily heaping up the total of . . ."; Κατὰ τὸ αὐτό with the same meaning, as in Acts 14:1, may be illustrated from the early marriage contract P Eleph 1.5 (B.C. 311–10) (= Selections p. 2) εἶναι δὲ ἡμᾶς κατὰ ταὐτό , ";and that we should live together."; In P Eleph 2.6 (B.C. 285–4) κατὰ ταὐτά = ";in the same way."; Vettius Valens, p. 57.28, uses τὸ δ᾽ αὐτό to express the same meaning (ὡσαύτως ).

On the redundant use of unemphatic αὐτός (in oblique cases) see Proleg. p. 84 f. We might add that possessive αὐτοῦ (like ἐμοῦ , etc.) becomes emphatic when placed between art. and noun : e.g. BGU IV. 1098.36 (c. B.C. 17) ἄνευ τῆς αὐτο [ ] γ ̣ν ̣[ ]μης , and so ib. 1126.12 (B.C. 8). On the extent to which αὐτός (in oblique cases again) may have enlarged its functions at the expense of ἑαυτοῦ see next article. In MGr it is the personal pronoun ";he"; etc., or means ";this.";
