Imperatives of motion

In Ancient Greek...many examples of present imperatives derived from verbs expressing motion are to be found. In the Koine literature, however, they are much more conspicuous, because so few present imperatives of other verbs occur. One even gets the impression that the Koine favours the use of the present imperative to express an order involving motion.—The Greek Imperative, page 82
