Is this an example of anacolouthon (breaking off of thought/sentence and starting a new one)? or are there words which are not written but implied (term?) ? Or is this perfectly normal Greek?Εὐθέως ἐγενόμην ἐν πνεύματι, καὶ ἰδοὺ θρόνος ἔκειτο ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον καθήμενος, 3 καὶ ὁ καθήμενος ὅμοιος ὁράσει λίθῳ ἰάσπιδι καὶ σαρδίῳ, καὶ ἶρις κυκλόθεν τοῦ θρόνου ὅμοιος ὁράσει σμαραγδίνῳ.
It seems like the phrase , καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον καθήμενος, is couching the words [ἦν τις] , καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον καθήμενος [ἦν τις]. 'someone was sitting'. It's almost like καθήμενος is an anarthrous noun like ἄνθρωπος. Are there any other instances of participles being used like this? Are participles (indefinite participles) usually accompanied by τις, δεινος, or some other qualifier when they are anarthrous?
I read a fair amount of Greek. Is this an awkward construction? A.T. Robertson does not mention it. I don't have access to a lot of commentaries on Revelation. But the construction just seems a little odd.
