Strictly speaking this is not a question about the Greek but a question about reading.  Texts must be read in context.  In the preceding portion of the chapter the Lamb is revealed

I have a question regarding Revelation 5:13. When John writes "and to the 
Lamb" is he identifiing a second person aside from "Him who sits on the 
trhone", or is this the hebraic literary device of repetition for emphasis, 
and there is on fact only one personage in view?, i.e. "Him who sits on the 
throne" IS the Lamb.

Revelation 5:13 (NASB)
13And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the 
earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, "To Him who 
sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and 
dominion forever and ever."

Would really appreciate help from a linguistic expert.

Many blessings
