Vocabulary of the Greek NT

the official Greek equivalent of Augustus = ";worthy to be reverenced or worshipped."; The title was bestowed on Octavian in B.C. 27, and was continued to his successors, e.g. Nero in Acts 25:21; Acts 25:25. Cf. P Oxy IV. 746.12 (A.D. 16), where a letter of recommendation is dated (ἔτους) γ ¯ Τιβερίου Καίσαρος Σεβαστοῦ Φαῶφι γ ¯, ";the 3rd year of Tiberius Caesar Augustus, Phaophi 3."; In BGU IV. 1074.2 (A.D. 275) the Emperor Aurelian announces, τὰ δὲ [υ ̣̔]πὸ το [ ] δ ̣[ὲ τ ]οῦ Σεβαστοῦ (viz. the Emperor Augustus) δ [εδ ]ομένα ὑμῖν νόμιμα καὶ φιλάνθ [ρ ]ωπα συντηρῶ. On the ἡμέραι Σεβασταί, held in honour of the Imperial family, see the note by GH ad P Oxy II. 288.5, and on the Σεβαστὸν νόμισμα ad ib. 264.8.

Following Usener (Bull. dell’ Inst. di Corrisp. Archeolog., 1874, p. 73 ff.), Lightfoot (Apostolic Fathers, Part II. 2 (1889), vol. i. p. 714) has pointed out that in Asia Minor and Egypt the title σεβαστή was applied to the first day of each month, probably ";as the monthly commemoration of the birthday of Augustus,"; and others would extend this usage to a day of the week, not a day of the month. Deissmann suggests that the early Christian designation ἡ κυριακὴ ἡμέρα may have been intended in part at least as a protest against the Imperial cult : see BS P. 218 f., LAE2 p. 358 ff., and EB 2816. Note further that F. H. Colson The Week (1926), p. 125 f., has shown, on the evidence of the papyri, that the σεβασταὶ ἡμέραι were not confined to any particular day of the week.
