 Patmos
    a small rocky and barren island, one of the group called the
    "Sporades," in the AEgean Sea. It is mentioned in Scripture only
    in Rev. 1:9. It was on this island, to which John was banished
    by the emperor Domitian (A.D. 95), that he received from God the
    wondrous revelation recorded in his book. This has naturally
    invested it with the deepest interest for all time. It is now
    called Patmo. (See JOHN.)
