Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The neut. τὸ θεμέλιον can be seen in P Petr II. 14(3).2 (as completed Introd. p. 30—iii/B.C.) εἰς ? τὸ θεμέλιον ψύξαι, ";for drying the foundation,"; ib. III. 46(4).4 τοῖς τὸ θεμ ̣ε ̣λ ̣ιον ὀρύξασι ε ̄, ";to those who dug the foundation, 5 (drachmae),"; and the plur., as in Acts 16:26 (cf. Proverbs 8:29), in P Strass I. 9.8 (c. A.D. 307 or 352) πηχισμ ̣οῖς καὶ θεμελίοις καὶ τίχεσιν, and P Lond ?121.519 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 101) καὶ ἐκεινήθη τῆς γῆς τὰ δ ̄ θεμείλια. In P Magd 27.4 (B.C. 218) βιάζεταί με πλίνθον προσ [ ]γων καὶ θεμέλιον σκάπτων ὥστε οἰκοδομεῖν, the gender is indeterminable, as in a number of the NT passages. So Chrest. II. 68.11 (A.D. 14) οὓς καὶ ἀνοικοδόμησα ἐπὶ τῶι [ἀρχ ]α [ ]ωι θεμελίωι, P Lond 991.10 (vi/A.D.) (=III. p. 258) ἀπὸ θεμελίου ἕως ἀέρως, Michel 1185.3 (ii/B.C.) ἐκ θεμελίω. For the LXX usage, see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 154 f., and cf. Moeris p. 185; θεμέλιον καὶ θεμέλια, οὐδετέρως, Ἀττικῶς.
