In a previous post, I asked about pleonasms of the kind oikon oikonomein, “to house manage a house,” where the accusative is of the same root as the first part of the verbal form. Does the same principle carry over when the noun form of the compound verbal is employed? In other words, are there structures of the form oikon oikonomos, “one who house manages a house,” where the compound noun takes the accusative? Examples and references appreciated. Thanks again.

The "object" noun would be in the genitive case.
