Actually, it's a "personal" pronoun. Perschbacher REFRESH YOUR GREEK (pp. 1104-1110) lists 9
kinds of pronouns:
7. Possessive - these are EMOS, SOS, hHMETEROS, hUMETEROS, etc., and the 3rd person genitive
singulars and plurals, i.e., AUTOU, AUTWN, etc.
In Revelation 22:3 the AUTWi is in the dative probably because that is how the object of
LATREUW is normally found. For it to be the "possessive pronoun" AUTOS would have to be in
the genitive case, not the dative case. The earlier AUTOU (i.e., hOI DOULOI AUTOU) in this
verse is a possessive pronoun, however.
