Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀκρογωνιαῖος may very well have been coined by the LXX (Isaiah 28:16). The Attic word was γωνιαῖος : see inscriptional citations in J. A. Robinson Ephesians, p. 164. Crönert (p. 233) has several other compounds of ἄκρος, some of which may be in the same category. W. W. Lloyd in CR iii. p. 419a (1889) among some architectural notes on Ephesians 2:20-22, says : ";The acrogoniaios here is the primary foundation-stone at the angle of the structure by which the architect fixes a standard for the bearings of the walls and cross-walls throughout.";
