Thank you for this insight.
Since I quoted BAGD as supporting "together", I should probably balance that
quote with another quote from the same dictionary. This morning I looked
under AUTOS and found the following:

KATA TO AUTO together, in the sense: in each otherís company ... and also at
the same time ... Ac 14:1; also poss. is in the same way (ENestle, Acts 14:1
: ET 24, í13, 187f), as prob. Hs 8, 7, 1

So, they do acknowledge the other option for Acts 14:1 even though it was
not listed under the entry for KATA.
