P Petr II. 4 (9)5 (iii/B.C.) ὥστε ἀνακαθᾶραι τὴν ἄμμον, ib. III. 43 (2) rectoii. 12 (2nd year of Euergetes I.) ἐργάσασθαι τὴν ἄμ ̣μ ̣ο ̣ν ̣ το ̣υ ̣ͅ ὑδραγωγο ̣υ ̣ͅ ε ̣̓π ̣ι ̣, τῆς κατὰ Ἡφαιστιάδα διώρυγος, ";to clear out the sand from the water-course of the canal near Hephaistias,"; BGU II. 53019 ff. (i/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 61) ὁ ὑδραγωγὸς συνεχώσθη ὑπὸ τῆς ἄμμου, ";the water-course was choked with sand,"; P Tebt II. 34227 (late ii/A.D.) εἰς ἐκσκαφὴν χοὸς. . . καὶ ἄμμου, P Flor II. 1575 (iii/A.D.) εἰς τ [ ] ἔργον ἐκεῖνο τὸ τῆς Θεω [ξ ]ενίδος, τούτεστιν τὸ τ ̣ῆς ἄμμου.
