I vaguely remember a note something like this in Wenham's Introduction 
to NT Greek. But I don't have it (or the rest of my books) to hand to 
check. And I don't think Wenham would have given any source. I would 
suggest looking at various lexicons to see if they mention any such

This is interesting--no idea of source?
