Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this rare adj. (Acts 3:11) which hitherto has been attested in profane Greek only from Polybius (xx. 10. 9), we may cite the imprecatory tablet of iii/A.D. discovered in the necropolis of Hadrumetum, Wünsch AF 5.20 καὶ οἱ δαίμονες ἐξεγερθῶσιν ἔκθαμβοι καὶ περίφοβοι [γ ]ενόμενοι.
