RE: GYNAIKAS in accusative

Is there validity in the argument that GYNAIKAS in v. 11 should be viewed
as the category "women" deacons rather than "wives" of deacons since the
three accusatives (vv. 2, 8, 11) are in an object relationship to DEI in
v. 2??

Although it seems awkward in interupt male deacons and return to them
in v. 12, v. 12 at lease starts a new structure when it readdresses
male deacons.
