Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";I am an ambassador,"; was the regular word in the Greek East for the Emperor’s legate (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:20, Ephesians 6:20, and see Deissmann LAE, p. 378 f.). Thus in the letter of the Emperor Claudius to a Gymnastic Club, P Lond 1178.14 (A.D. 194) (= III. p. 216, Selections p. 99), acknowledging the ";golden crown"; they had sent him in commemoration of his victorious campaign in Britain, we are told, οἱ πρεσβεύοντες ἦσαν Τιβ. Κλ. Ἑρμᾶς, Τιβ. Κλ. Κῦρος. . . . For other exx. of the verb in this sense see Magie p. 89, and for its wider use in regard to embassies between town and town, cf. Priene 108.164 (B.C.129) ἐπ ]ρ ̣[έσβ ]ε ̣υσεν ὑπὲρ τοῦ δήμου. Amongst the questions addressed to an oracle in iii/iv A.D., P Oxy XII. 1477.16 f., are the following—εἶ πρεσβεύσω; εἶ γίνομαι βουλευτής; ";shall I become an ambassador (?)? am I to become a senator?"; (Edd.).

Like πρεσβεία, πρεσβεύω comes to be used of petition or intercession, as perhaps in PSI VI. 571.7 (B.C.252–250?) περὶ ὧν Μηνόδωρος ὁ ἀδελφὸς πρεσβεύσας ἀνήγγε íλ ýλε íι ̣ýν ἡμῖν ἀφεικέναι σε ἡμᾶς.
