Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Cairo Zen I. 59060.7 (B.C. 257) Hierokles writes to Zenon regarding a boy who was Zenon’s nominee in the games, ἐλπίζω σε στεφανωθήσεσθαι, ";I hope that you will be crowned (i.e. victorious) through him"; : cf. 2 Timothy 2:5.

The verb is used technically of the ceremonial crowning of magistrates, e.g. P Oxy VIII. 1117.5 (c. A.D. 178) τῶν τοῦ ἔτους ἐστεφανωμένων ἀρχ [όντων, P Ryl II. 77.37 (A.D. 192) ὁ Ἀχιλλεὺς βούλεται στεφανωθῆναι ἐχηγητείαν, and Preisigke 4101.4 τὸν προφήτην ἐστεφάνωσε.

For the late sense ";reward,"; cf. Polyb. xiii. 9. 5 ἐστεφάνωσαν τὸν Ἀντίοχον πεντακοσίοις ἀργυρίου ταλάντοις, and see s.v. στέφανος.

The compd. verb στεφανηφορέω is seen in P Oxy VII. 1021.15 (A.D. 54) στεφανηφοροῦντας καὶ βουθυτοῦντας, ";wearing garlands and with sacrifices of oxen,"; to celebrate Nero’s accession; the subst. in P Giss I. 27.8 (Trajan/Hadrian) (= Chrest. I. p. 29) στεφανη ̣φορίαν ἄξω, to celebrate a victory; and the adj. in P Ryl II. 77.34 (A.D. 192) στεφα [νη ]φόρον ἐξηγητείαν, ";the office of a crowned exegetes.";
