>George brought up a KATA SUNESIN construction. Does anybody know of a list 
>of
examples of these constructions in any grammar? Just how common are they in
extra-biblical Greek literature, and why could they not, in some cases, just 
be
mistakes? And if not, why even utilize such a construction? Why be so 
ambiguous?
What purpose is attained in not using the correct grammatical gender?

The ancients knew that people would be reading their literature for 
centuries to come, and did such things deliberately in order to annoy modern 
students of the language.
