I have a slightly different take on the function of KATA TO AUTO in Acts
14.1.  When I first looked at it, it struck me as meaning something like "in

did previously in their previous stop.  But flipping through my 2nd line
Thayers, it lists 'KATA TO AUTO' as meaning 'together' in their entry for
AUTOS (III.1).  I am not sure I buy that but that's what it says.

The infinitives are a little more straight forward.  They are linked to


I can't quote to you an exact grammatical name for that but I am pretty sure
that is what is happening.  You need the context to know who is doing what
with regard to the infinitives.
