(1882) 224,227, 230-250, & Tab. xiv, xvi. — (If ׳ד = drachma, then perhaps editorial insertion in Nehemiah Ezra (regarded as loan-word in both Greek & Hebrew from some Asiatic source by Ew GGA 1855,1392ff.; 1856,798; Geschichte. i. 274, H. i. 189 compare Sm Listen 18, N. 24, but on Greek derivatives compare Lex.

דרע (according to Thes connected with Aramaic דְּרָע, אֶדְרָע arm, Hebrew זְרוֺעַ, whence following in sense strong, of fortified city; this, however, is dubious)
