Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This late Greek word = ";a great one,"; ";a courtier,"; (Lob. Phryn. p. 196 f., Sturz Dial. Mac. p. 180 ff.), is found, generally in the plur. μεγιστᾶνες, in the later books of the LXX (e.g. Daniel 5:23), and ter in the NT (Mark 6:21, Revelation 6:15; Revelation 18:23) : cf. also Pss. Sol. ii. 36 οἱ μεγιστᾶνες τῆς γῆς, perhaps the leading men of Palestine, but more probably the victorious party of Caesar (Ryle and James). From the papyri we may cite P Leid Wvi. 39 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 101) θυμοκάτοχον πρὸς βασ (ιλεῖς) ἢ μεγειστάναις (l. μεγιστᾶνας) ";(formula) for restraining anger against kings or great men.";
