Ἀλφαῖος (WH Ἁλφ., see their Introductory § 408), , (חַלְפַּי cf. חַגַּי Ἀγγαῖος, Haggai 1:1), Alphoeus or Alpheus;

1. the father of Levi the publican: Mark 2:14, see Λευί, 4.

2. the father of James the less, so called, one of the twelve apostles: Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18; Luke 6:15; Acts 1:13. He seems to be the same person who in John 19:25 (cf. Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40) is called Κλωπᾶς after a different pronunciation of the Hebrew חלפי accusative to which cheth (ח) was changed into kappa κ', as פֶּסַח φασεκ, 2 Chronicles 30:1. Cf. Ἰάκωβος, 2; (B. D. American edition under the word ; also Lightfoot's Commentary on Galatians, pp. 256, 267 (American edition, pp. 92, 103); Wetzel in Studien und Kritiken for 1883, 10. 620f).
