Vocabulary of the Greek NT

στέμμα occurs in the NT only in Acts 14:13, where it refers to the sacrificial garlands with which the victims were adorned (cf. Field Notes, p. 122). In P Ryl II. 77.31 (A.D. 192) it is used in connexion with ";guilds,"; οἱ διέπον [τες τὴν τ ]ῶν στεμμάτων [διοίκησι ]ν εἶπον, ";the administrators of the guilds said"; (see the editors’ note), and in P Fay 87.10 (A.D. 155) a sum is paid τῷ ἐπὶ τῶν στεμμάτων προκεχι (ρισμένῳ), ";to the official in charge of the stemmata"; (see the editors’ note). The sepulchral Kaibel 858.2 shows στέμμασιν ἀθανάτοις. See further Headlam’s elaborate note ad Herodas VIII. 11.

For the verb στέφω we may cite P Ryl II. 77.34 (A.D. 192) στεφέσθω Ἀχιλλεὺς κοσμητείαν, ";let Achilles be crowned as cosmetes.";
