[b-greek] EPROFHTEUSEN - Luke 1:67

I have a question about the form of a verb and its implications if any. In
Luke 1:67 Luke use the aorist of PROFETEUW. I noticed that in the
Coptic/Egytian manuscripts it is EPROFUTEUSEN, but in the Byzantine
manuscripts it is PROEFHTEUSE. I understand the second as the compound is
PRO-FETEUW. Is the first simply a geographic dialect difference? or is there
a subtle distinction in how these two grougs may have seen the word?

Just curious about this. Thanks
