STRONGS G4973:
σφραγίς, σφραγῖδος, (akin, apparently, to the verb φράσσω or φράγνυμι), from Herodotus down, the Sept. for חותָם, a seal; i. e.
a. the seal placed upon books (cf. B. D., under the word , under the end; Gardthausen, Palaeogr., p. 27): Revelation 5:1; λῦσαι τάς σφραγας, ibid. Revelation 5:2, 5 (Rec.); ἀνοῖξαι, ibid. (5 G L T Tr WH), Revelation 5:9; Revelation 6:1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12; 8:1.
b. a signet-ring: Revelation 7:2.
c. the inscription or impression made by a seal: Revelation 9:4 (the name of God and Christ stamped upon their foreheads must be meant here, as is evident from Revelation 14:1); 2 Timothy 2:19.
