Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
 

About:

Besides prepositions, the following signify "about": --

A-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g2943 Greek: kuklothen

About:

"round about, or all round" (from kuklos, "a circle; Eng., cycle"), is found in the Apocalypse only, 4:3, 4, 8.

A-2 Adverb Strong's Number: g2945 Greek: kuklo

About:

the dative case of kuklos (see above), means "round about," lit., "in a circle." It is used in the same way as No. 1, Mar 3:34; 6:6, 36; Luk 9:12; Rom 15:19; Rev 4:6; 5:11; 7:11.

A-3 Adverb Strong's Number: g4225 Greek: pou

About:

an indefinite particle, signifying "somewhere, somewhere about, nearly," has a limiting force, with numerals, e.g., Rom 4:19. In referring to a passage in the OT, it is translated "somewhere," in the RV of Hbr 2:6; 4:4 (AV, "in a certain place"); by not mentioning the actual passage referred to, the writer acknowledged the familiar acquaintance of his readers with the OT.
See PLACE.

A-4 Adverb Strong's Number: g3739 Greek: hos

About:

usually means "as." Used with numerals it signifies "about," e.g., Mar 5:13; 8: Jhn 1:40; 6:19; 11:18; Act 1:15; Rev 8:1.

A-5 Adverb Strong's Number: g5616 Greek: hosei

About:

"as if," before numerals, denotes "about, nearly, something like," with perhaps an indication of greater indefiniteness than No. 4, e.g., Mat 14:21; Luk 3:23; 9:14, 28; Act 2:41; with a measure of space, Luk 22:41, "about a stone's cast."
See LIKE.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g3195 Greek: mello

About:

signifies

(a) "of intention, to be about to do something," e.g., Act 3:3; 18:14; 20:3; Hbr 8:5;

(b) "of certainty, compulsion or necessity, to be certain to act," e.g., Jhn 6:71.
See ALMOST, BEGIN, COME, INTEND, MEAN, MIND, POINT OF (at), READY, SHALL, SHOULD, TARRY.

Note: Zeteo, "to seek," is translated "were about" in the AV of Act 27:30; RV, correctly, "were seeking to."
