okie dokie- since one example suffices (evidently) to establish the meaning
of every occurance of every word (without any view to the context)- i offer
the following:

 rhêtor[i], eip(en): anagnôthi kai su mou nomo?n?. S?e?[leu]k?os s?u?nêgoros
eip(en): kai meta Seouêron pantes hoi hêgoumenoi houtôs  

Sammelbuch griechischer Urkunden aus Aegypten document 7696 (1.85)

anaginwskw here can and should be rendered *tell* or *reiterate* or *recite*.  

as i have suggested on dozens of occassions, context is completely essential
in determining meaning.  i again suggest that readers of nt texts sensitize
themselves to the context of words rather than blindly swallowing whatever
preconceived notions they have of the text.

best
