P Lille I. 17.18 (iii/B.C.) ]πόστιλον αὐτῶι τινά, ἵνα διασωθῇ ὁ σῖτος ὁ παρ᾽ ὑμᾶς, P Vat A.6 (B.C. 168) (= Witkowski.2, p. 65) κομισάμενος τὴν παρὰ σοῦ ἐπιστολήν, ἐν ἧι διεσάφεις διασεσῶσθαι ἐγ μεγάλων κινδύνων, P Par 29.4 (B.C. 161–0) διασωθεὶς κατὰ τὸ δίκαιον ἐκ τῶν ἔξωθεν τόπων, BGU I. 332.7 (ii/iii A.D.) ̣χ ̣άρην κομισαμένη γράμματα, ὅτι καλῶς διεσώθητε, ib. 341.13 (ii/A.D.) (as restored in Preisigke p. 40) ὅσοι μὲν τελέω ]ς δ [ι ]α ̣σ ̣ωθησόμενοι πρὸς τοὺς ϊδί [ους κατέφυγον. See also the iv/A.D. Christian letter, P Oxy VI. 939.8 ἡμῖν ἵλεως ἐγένετο [καὶ ταῖς εὐ ]χαῖς ἡμῶν ἐπένευσεν διασώσας ἡμῖν [τὴν ἡμῶν ] κυρίαν, ";He was gracious to us and inclined His ear to our prayers by preserving for us our mistress."; Add from inscrr. Syll 490.15 (iii/B.C.) ἀλλ᾽ ὁμοίως περὶ πάντα [ς τὸ ]ς πολί [τ ]ας [σπουδ ]άζων διέσωισε πολλούς. In connexion with 1 Peter 3:20, where it describes Noah’s being ";safely brought into"; the Ark, it is worth noting that Josephus uses the verb about Noah, in c. Apion. i. 130 περὶ τῆς λάρνακος, ἐν ᾗ Νῶχος. . διεσώθη.
