1 The implication of this claim on Philip's part was that he was in some fashion the equal of the Twelve and entitled like them to worship; σύνθρονος is an equivalent to σύνναος. What precisely this meant to Philip and his contemporaries is unknown; cp. Habicht, Gottmenschentum, 14, note 3; L. Cerfaux, J. Tondriau, Le Culte des souverains dans la civilisation gréco-romaine (1956), 123-125.

3 Stated in chap. 1.1-3.
