Yes, and I'm afraid the rest of the list is almost equally uninformative since it mainly is constituted by quotations of the passage.  It would almost as well be a hapax if this were all we had to go by.  Moulton and Milligan have an entry which is perhaps slightly more helpful in that it isn't Christian and therefore isn't limited simply to a recitation of the passage.

θεόπνευστος     2315
Syll55212(ii/b.c.) opens a decree in connexion with the Parthenon at Magnesia with the words θείας ἐπιπνοίας καὶ παραστάσεως γενομένης τῶι σύνπαντι πλήθει τοῦ πολιτ εύματος εἰς τὴν ἀποκατάστασιν τοῦ ναοῦ—a divine “inspiration and desire” which has impelled the people to arise and build to the glory of Artemis. Cf. also Vett. Val. p. 33019ἔστι δέ τι καὶ θεῖον ἐν ἡμῖν θεόπνευστον δημιούργημα.

Subject: Re: [B-Greek] QEOPNEUSTOS

The excerpts George cites from a pseudo-Athanasian (late 4th cent? 5th
cent.?) dialogue between one Mr. Orthodox (ORQ.) and one Mr.
Macedonian (MAKED.) appear to be arguing for the divinity of the Holy
Spirit by showing that the PNEUMA must be identified with or included
in the QEOS in QEOPNEUSTOS. They're interesting, but I don't think
they shed any light on CM's question (what does the phrase
[deutero-]Pauline phrase GRAFH QEOPNEUSTOS imply regarding the
inerrancy of Scripture). That's because the author of the dialogue is
arguing, as the Migne title indicates, De sancta trinitate, not De
sacra scriptura.
