Ἀρέτας

(WH, Ἀρ .; Intr., 313), -α , ,

Aretas, an Arabian king: 2 Corinthians 11:32 (Deiss., BS, 183 f., thinks the proper spelling Ἀρέθας was changed, as Schürer suggests, "by desire to Hellenise a barbaric name by assimilation to ἀρετή ").†

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The form Ἁρέτας (for rough breathing see WH Intr..2 p. 313) instead of Ἁρέθας may, as Deissmann (BS p. 183 f.), following Schürer Geschichte i. p. 738, has suggested, be due to a desire to Hellenize the barbaric name by assimilation to ἀρετή.
