  67. This ornament, which is both ancient and universal, probably originated from the fillets used to prevent the hair from being dishevelled by the wind. Such fillets are still common; they gradually developed into turbans, which by the addition of ornamental or precious materials assumed the dignity of mitres or crowns. Both the ordinary priests and the high priest wore them. The crown was a symbol of royalty, and was worn by kings, ( 2 Chronicles 23:11 ) and also by queens. ( Esther 2:17 ) The head-dress of bridegrooms, ( Ezekiel 24:17 ; Isaiah 61:10 ) Bar. 5:2, and of women, ( Isaiah 3:20 ) a head-dress of great splendor, ( Isaiah 28:5 ) a wreath of flowers, ( Proverbs 1:9 ; 4:9 ) denote crowns. In general we must attach to it the notion of a costly turban irradiated with pearls and gems of priceless value, which often form aigrettes for feathers, as in the crowns of modern Asiatics sovereigns. Such was probably the crown which weighed (or rather "was worth") a talent, mentioned in ( 2 Samuel 12:30 ) taken by David from the king of Ammon at Rabbah, and used as the state crown of Judah. ( 2 Samuel 12:30 ) In ( Revelation 12:3 ; 19:12 ) allusion is made to "many crowns" worn in token of extended dominion. The laurel, pine or parsley crowns given to victors int he great games of Greece are finely alluded to by St. Paul. ( 1 Corinthians 9:25 ; 2 Timothy 2:5 ) etc. biblestudytools.com
  68. Same as Corona. mso.anu.edu.au
  69. Denotes the plate of gold in the front of the high priest's mitre ( Exodus 29:6 ; 39:30 ). The same Hebrew word so rendered (ne'zer) denotes the diadem worn by Saul in battle ( 2 Samuel 1:10 ), and also that which was used at the coronation of Joash ( 2 Kings 11:12 ). biblestudytools.com
  70. The more general name in Hebrew for a crown is 'atarah , meaning a "circlet." This is used of crowns and head ornaments of divers kinds, including royal crowns. Such was the crown taken from the king of Ammon by David ( 2 Samuel 12:30 ). The crown worn by the Assyrian kings was a high mitre, sometimes adorned with flowers. There are sculptures also representing the crowns worn by the early Egyptian and Persian kings. Sometimes a diadem surrounded the royal head-dress of two or three fillets. This probably signified that the wearer had dominion over two or three countries. In Revelation 12:3 ; 13:1 , we read of "many crowns," a token of extended dominion. biblestudytools.com
  71. The ancient Persian crown ( Esther 1:11 ; 2:17 ; 6:8 ) was called kether ; i.e., "a chaplet," a high cap or tiara. Crowns were worn sometimes to represent honour and power ( Ezekiel 23:42 ). They were worn at marriages (Cant 3:11 ; Isaiah 61:10 , "ornaments;" RSV, "a garland"), and at feasts and public festivals. The crown was among the Romans and Greeks a symbol of victory and reward. The crown or wreath worn by the victors in the Olympic games was made of leaves of the wild olive; in the Pythian games, of laurel; in the Nemean games, of parsley; and in the Isthmian games, of the pine. The Romans bestowed the "civic crown" on him who saved the life of a citizen. It was made of the leaves of the oak. In opposition to all these fading crowns the apostles speak of the incorruptible crown, the crown of life ( James 1:12 ; Revelation 2:10 ) "that fadeth not away" ( 1 Peter 5:4 , Gr. amarantinos; comp 1:4 ). Probably the word "amaranth" was applied to flowers we call "everlasting," the "immortal amaranth." These dictionary topics are fromM.G.
