	The AU)QENTE/W lemma on the DGE includes about 15 quotations 
of the word (mostly from papyri). All the quotations are given the 
translation "ejercer la autoridad" except Sch.A.Eu.42a, wich is 
translated "ser responsable de una muerte."

	The RBLG mentions only the Wilshire article already mentioned 
by Clayton, in addition to Deissman's Licht von Osten pp. 69-70. 
Thanks again to Clayton for his very interesting references to Knight 
(to be added at the on-line RBLG addenda) and Graves!
