BGU II. 423.7 (ii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 90) εὐχαριστῶ τῷ κυρίῳ Σεράπιδι, ὅτι μου κινδυνεύσαντος εἰς θάλασσαν (cf. 2 Corinthians 11:26) ἔσωσε, P Oxy VII. 1067.29 (iii/A.D.) ἀγόρασόν μοι ὀψαρίδιον ἐκ τῆς θαλάσσης (cf. John 21:10), and from the inscrr. Michel 372.11 (ii/B.C.) ἐργα [ζ ]όμενός τε κατὰ θάλασσαν ἐργασίαν, ib. 521.10 (ii/B.C.) κατὰ γῆς καὶ κατὰ θαλάσσας. For references to ἡ ἐρυθρὰ θάλασσα, as in Ac 7.86, Hebrews 11:29, cf. P Grenf I. 9.3 (iii/B.C.) ἐρ ]υθρᾶι θαλάσσηι, OGIS 186.5 (B.C. 62) ὁ συγγενὴς καὶ ἐπιστράτηγος καὶ στρατηγὸς τῆς Ἰνδικῆς καὶ Ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης, ib. 190.9 (B.C. 51) ἐπὶ τῆς Ἰνδικῆς καὶ Ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης : cf. also the intr. to P Ryl 11. 66 (late ii/B.c.).
