The Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament by Milligan & Moulton

ἅμα [page 24]

The adverbial use seen in Mat 20:1 may be illustrated by P Flor I. 365 (c. iv/A.D., init.) μν̣η̣στευσαμένου μου . . . τὴν . . . [θ]υγατέρα . . . [ἅ]μα ἐκ νηπίας ἡλικίας, P Oxy VII. 102516 (late iii/A.D.) τῶν θεωριῶν ἅμ̣̕ α̣ὺ̣[ρ]ιον ἥτις ἐστὶν ῑ ἀγ̣ο̣μ̣[έν]ων. For ἅμα = “at the same time,” see P Giss I. 138 (ii/A.D.) πέμψεις ἅμα τὰς γ̄ ἐπιστολάς, P Oxy IV. 798 (probably B.C. 183) ὡς δ᾽ ἂν παραγένωνται οἱ σιτολόγοι ἐπὶ τὴν παράληψιν τῶν σιτικῶν ἀπομετρήσομεν ἅμα καὶ ταῦτα, al. With ἅμα c. dat. “together with,” cf. P Oxy IV. 65813 (A.D. 250) τῶν ἱερῶν ἐγευσάμην ἅμα τῷ υἱῷ μου, so with a dat. P Rein 2614 (B.C. 104) ἅμα τῆι συγγραφῆι ταύτηι ἀναφερομένηι, P Oxy VI. 975 (i/A.D.) a loan to be repaid ἅμα τῇ ᾽μῇ τρύ[γ]ῃ, P Petr I. 24 (3) (c. B.C. 249) ἅμα τῆι λοιπῆι ἀγορᾶι ἧι εἰλήφασι ἐγ βασιλικοῦ, P Flor I. 615 (A.D. 210) ἐχειροτονήθην ἅμ᾽ ἄλλο̣ι̣ς, ib. 2115 (A.D. 239) ἅμα τοῖς τῆς κώμης δημοσίοις (neuter) πᾶσι. The use of ἅμα therefore as an “improper” preposition was not unusual. Paul however prefers to keep it as an adverb, adding σύν (1Th 4:17, 1Th 5:10) : for the preposition only Mat 13:29 is quotable from NT, and even there D adds σύν. We may compare ὁμόσε c. dat. in P Lips Inv 266 (ii/A.D.-Archiv v. 245) ὁμόσε ταῖς ἄλλαις εὐεργεσίαις. Thayer’s note that “ἅμα is temporal and ὁμοῦ local, in the main” (from Ammonius), has support from most of our examples. Both usages are illustrated in the Ptolemaic Pathyris papyrus (Archiv ii. p. 515 f.) ἐπεὶ γέγρᾳφεν ὁ πατὴρ συνμίσγειν ἄγων τοὺς Κροκοδιλοπολίτας καὶ ὑμᾶς ἅμα, ὀρθῶς ποιήσετε καὶ κεχαρισμένως ἑτοίμους γενέσθαι ὡς ἅμα ἡμῖν συνεξορμήσητε.
