The Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament by Milligan & Moulton

ἄνευ [page 42]

P Par 45.4 (B.C.153) ἄνευ τῶν θεῶν οὐθὲν γίνεται, BGU I. 267.8 (A.D. 199) ἄνευ τινὸς ἀμφισβητήσεως. Quotations are hardly needed, but see Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 559 f., where it is shown that in certain connexions ἄνευ must have the meaning of “without the knowledge of” rather than “in the absence of,” e.g. P Petr II. Appendix, p. 3, ὅτι ἄνευ ἡμῶν καὶ τῶν μετ᾽ Ἀριστοκρίτους λογευτῶν [προ]ξενεῖ τοὺς ὑποτελεῖς τοῦ φνλακ[τι]κοῦ εἰς τὸ ἴδιον, where Wilcken translates “ohne unser Wissen und ohne Wissen jener Logeuten lädt er die Steuerzahler zu sich in’s Haus.” In sepulchral inscriptions the preposition is often used in the sense “apart from,” “except,” as in the formula ἐάν τις τολμήσηι ἀνῦξε (l. ἀνοῖξαι) τὸν σορὸν τοῦτον ἄνευ τῶν ἰδίων αὐτοῦ, see IGSI 3225, 2327, al. cited by Herwerden. See further Kuhring, p. 46 f.
