That is what I am most particularly interested in finding examples of. Here's the abbreviated excerpt from Smyth:3042. Pleonasm
f. Compound verb . . . οἶκον καλῶς οἰκονομεῖν to build a house well X. M. 4.5.10.
This could literally be rendered as "to house manage a house well," bringing out the pleonastic character more clearly.
