ἀκρο-γωνιαῖος, α, ον,

at the extreme angle, ἀ. λίθος corner foundation -stone, LXX Isaiah 28:16, Ephesians 2:20.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἀκρογωνιαῖος, , , a word wholly Biblical and ecclesiastical (Winer's Grammar, 99 (94); 236 (221)) (ἄκρος extreme, and γωνία corner, angle), placed at the extreme corner; λίθος cornerstone; used of Christ, 1 Peter 2:6; Ephesians 2:20; the Sept. Isaiah 28:16 for פִּנָּה אֶבֶן. For as the cornerstone holds together two walls, so Christ joins together as Christians, into one body dedicated to God, those who were formerly Jews and Gentiles, Ephesians 2:20 (yet cf. Meyer at the passage) compared with Ephesians 2:14, 16-19, 21f And as a cornerstone contributes to sustain the edifice, but nevertheless some fall in going around the corner carelessly; so some are built up by the aid of Christ, while others stumbling at Christ perish, 1 Peter 2:6-8; see γωνία, a.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀκρογωνιαῖος may very well have been coined by the LXX (Isaiah 28:16). The Attic word was γωνιαῖος : see inscriptional citations in J. A. Robinson Ephesians, p. 164. Crönert (p. 233) has several other compounds of ἄκρος, some of which may be in the same category. W. W. Lloyd in CR iii. p. 419a (1889) among some architectural notes on Ephesians 2:20-22, says : ";The acrogoniaios here is the primary foundation-stone at the angle of the structure by which the architect fixes a standard for the bearings of the walls and cross-walls throughout.";
