Dear B-Greekers,

According to Hatch Redpath there does appear to be one occurance of
imperfect of ARCOMAI in the LXX:

Jos 17:12
KAI OUK HDUNASQHSAN hOI hUIOI MANASSH EXOLEQREUSAI TAS POLEIS TAUTAS, KAI
HRCETO hO CANANAIOS KATOIKEIN EN THi GHi TAUTHi

While Alexandrinus has HRXATO Rahlfs reads the imperfect, HRCETO and
Brenton translates this word as "began" though this can hardly be right.
After all, the Canaanites were there long before the sons of Manasseh
arrived on the scene!

Yours in His grace,
