Is the expression πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης found elsewhere in extant ancient Greek literature besides Rom. 1:4?

The expression is found in the Testament of Levi.

Test. Levi 18.11 wrote:καὶ δώσει τοῖς ἁγίοις φαγεῖν ἐκ τοῦ ξύλου τῆς ζωῆς, καὶ πνεῦμα ἁγιωσύνης ἔσται ἐπ’ αὐτοῖς.


It is also found among 3rd century and later Patristic authors, usually quoting Rom 1:4.
