Thanks for sharing that one, StirlingStirling Bartholomew wrote: ↑May 8th, 2020, 1:00 pmThe first sample from Athanasius is easy to comprehend. The article points back to and highlights a previous use of the adverb. This is probably not what you are looking for however.
ATHANASIUS Theol. Orationes tres contra Arianos Volume 26 page 33 line 30
Knowing your current studies in Athanasius, I did check him first. The four examples TLG gave all looked like Athanasius was using ποτέ just as meaning "once" rather than "when." Interestingly, all of them are from the third discourse against the Arians.
John Chrysostom seems to have something akin to how I would interpret the usage here in Luke 12:36 in Min. 157:
Here in English we'd probably just say "when" and "what", but we could easily change these to "the exact time to give" and "the exact thing to give":Εἰ γὰρ ὑμεῖς, φησὶν, οἴδατε δόματα ἀγαθὰ διδόναι τοῖς τέκνοις ὑμῶν, πολλῷ μᾶλλον ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ἐπιστάμενος τὸ δοῦναι, καὶ τὸ πότε δοῦναι, καὶ τὸ τί δοῦναι.
For if you, he affirms, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more our God, who knows how to give, and the 'when' to give, and the 'what' to give.
