About fifteen furlongs off (w apo stadiwn dekapente). The idiom of apo with the ablative for distance is like the Latin a millibus passum duobus (Caesar, Bell. Gall. ii. 7), but it (pro also, John 12:1 ) occurs already in the Doric and in the Koin often (Moulton, Proleg., p. 101; Robertson, Grammar, p. 110). See it again in John 21:8 ; Revelation 14:20 .
