Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In OGIS 573.22 (i/A.D.) the title of δυνάστης is applied to the son of Archelaus who succeeded his father in the government of Cilicia without the title of King. It describes the chief of a Thracian clan in Syll 318.22 (B.C. 118) συνεπελθόντος μετ᾽ αὐτῶν Τίπα τοῦ τῶν Μαίδων δυνάστου μετ᾽ ὄχλ [ου π ]λείονος. The Commagene rescript, OGIS 383.229 (middle of i/B.C.) has ὅστις τε ἄν βασιλεὺς ἤ δυνάστης ἐν μακρῶι χρόνωι ταύτην ἀρχὴν παραλάβῃ, and ib. 441.132 (B.C. 81) αἵδε ἀπεδέξαντο τῶν πόλεων καὶ βασιλέ [ων ] καὶ δυναστῶν τήν τε ἀσυλίαν τοῦ ἱεροῦ καὶ τὸ [ν ] ἀγῶνα τὸν τιθέμενον κατὰ πενταετηρίδα Ἑκάτηι Σωτείραι Ἐπιφανεῖ κτλ. For δυναστεύω see the Canopic decree, OGIS 56.12 (B.C. 237) τήν τε χώραν ἐν εἰρήνηι διατετήρηκεν προπολεμῶν ὑπὲρ αὺτῆς πρὸς πολλὰ ἔθνη καὶ τοὺς ἐν αὐτοῖς δυναστεύοντας, and for δυναστεία, BGU II. 428.7 (ii/A.D.). This last word is applied to the Divine sovranty in Aristeas 194 καὶ γὰρ ὁ θεὸς διδοὺς ἀνοχὰς καὶ ἐνδεικνύμενος τὰ τῆς δυναστείας φόβον ἐγκατασκευάζει πάσῃ διανοίᾳ, ";for God also by granting a reprieve and making but a display of His sovranty instils terror into every breast.";
