[pat-mos, -mohs, -muh s; Greek paht-maws] /ˈpæt mɒs, -moʊs, -məs; Greek ˈpɑt mɔs/

one of the Dodecanese Islands, off the SW coast of Asia Minor: St. John is supposed to have been exiled here (Rev. 1:9). 13 sq. mi. (34 sq. km).
a Greek island in the Aegean, in the NW Dodecanese: St John’s place of exile (about 95 ad), where he wrote the Apocalypse. Pop: 2984 (2001). Area: 34 sq km (13 sq miles)

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.)
