Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this word, which in the NT, and notably in the Apocalypse, is always an official seat or chair of state, we may compare OGIS 383.25 (rescript of Commagene—mid. i/B.C.) ἐγὼ πατρώιαν [ ]ρχὴν [π ]αρ [αλ ]α [β ]ὼν βασιλείαν [μ ]ὲν ἐμο [ ]ς ὑπήκοον θρόνοις, ib. .42 πρὸς οὐρανίους Διὸς Ὠρομάσδου θρόνους, and Preisigke 982.7 (B.C. 4) ὑπὲρ Αὐτοκράτορος Καίσαρος θεοῦ υἱοῦ Σεβαστοῦ. . . τ [ ]ν θρόνον καὶ τὸν βωμὸν ἀνέθηκε, ib. 1164.8 (B.C. 181–45) ὑπὲρ βασιλέως Πτολεμαίο (υ) καὶ βασιλίσσης Κλεοπάτρας. . . τὸ Πτολεμαῖον καὶ τὸν θρόνον Ἑρμεῖ Ἡρακλεῖ. In connexion with the above it may be noticed that Deissmann (LAE, p. 280 n..2) from personal observation thinks that ὁ θρόνος τοῦ Σατανᾶ (Revelation 2:13) at Pergamum can only have been the altar of Zeus, which there dominated the whole district, and was thus a typical representative of satanic heathendom. The word in its original sense of ";seat,"; ";chair,"; is found in P Oxy VII. 1050.4 (ii/iii A.D.) θρόνῳ (δραχμαὶ) κ ̄, ";for a chair 20 dr.";
