Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κτίζω in the sense of ";found"; a city or colony, as in 1 Esdras 4:53, may be illustrated from an inscr., probably to be assigned to B.C. 69–8, which is reproduced in P Fay p. 48.1 κτ [ι ]σθέντος τοῦ σημαινομένου ἱεροῦ : cf. also the Alexandrian erotic fragment P Grenf I. 1.4 (ii/B.C.) ὁ τὴν φιλίαν ἐκτικὼς ἔλαβέ με ἔρως, ";love the stablisher of friendship overcame me."; The usage in this last passage approximates more nearly to the distinctive Biblical usage of the word, ";create,"; ";form,"; which occurs again in the imprecatory tablet Wünsch AF 4.1 (iii/A.D.) ἐξορκίζω σε ὅστ [ι ]ς ποτ᾽ εἷ, νεκυδαῖμον, τὸν θεὸν τὸν κτίσαντα γῆν κ [α ]ὶ οὐρανὸν Ἰωνα.
