Thayer's Expanded Definition
 στέφανος, στεφάνου, (στέφω (to put round; cf. Curtius, § 224)), the Sept. for עֲטָרָה (from Homer down), a crown (with which the head is encircled);

a. properly, as a mark of royal or (in general) exalted rank (such passages in the Sept. as 2 Samuel 12:30; 1 Chronicles 20:2; Psalm 20:4 (Psalm 21:4>); Ezekiel 21:26; Zechariah 6:11,14 (yet cf. 2 Samuel 1:10 Complutensian, Lagarde LXX), perhaps justify the doubt whether the distinction between στέφανος and διάδημα (which see) was strictly observed in Hellenistic Greek): Matthew 27:29; Mark 15:17; John 19:2,5; Revelation 4:4,10; Revelation 6:2; Revelation 9:7; Revelation 14:14; with a genitive of the material, ἀστέρων δώδεκα, Revelation 12:1; the wreath or garland which was given as a prize to victors in the public games (cf. BB. DD. under the word ): 1 Corinthians 9:25, cf. 2 Timothy 2:5.

b. metaphorically, α. the eternal blessedness which will be given as a prize to the genuine servants of God and Christ: τῆς δικαιοσύνης στέφανος, the crown (wreath) which is the reward of righteousness, 2 Timothy 4:8; with an epexegetical genitive in the phrases λαμβάνεσθαι, διδόναι τόν στέφανον τῆς ζωῆς, equivalent to τήν ζωήν ὡς τόν στέφανον, James 1:12; Revelation 2:10; κομίζεσθαι τόν τῆς δόξης στέφανον, 1 Peter 5:4; λαβεῖν τόν στέφανον τίνος, to cause one to fail of the promised and hoped for prize, Revelation 3:11. β. that which is an ornament and honor to one: so of persons, Philippians 4:1; στέφανος καυχήσεως (see καύχησις, 1 Thessalonians 2:19 ( Proverbs 12:4; Proverbs 16:31; Proverbs 17:6, etc.).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";sharing the experiences"; of others (1 Peter 3:8) : cf. OGIS 456.66 (B.C. 27–11) προσενηνεγμένης αὐτῆς (sc. τῆς συγκλήτου) τῇ πόλει συμπαθέστατα. For the subst. cf. ib. 470.24 (time of Augustus) τῇ τῶν Ἑλλήνων συνπα [θείᾳ. In Epicurus συμπάθεια has often the general meaning ";correspondence,"; e.g. Ep. I. 48, 50 (ed. Bailey). Συμπαθηθῆναι is one of the numerous list of passive aorists which are found in the Bvzantine chronicles, though not in Attic Greek : see Psaltes Gr. p. 226.
