[Meaning] someone/something ancient.[1]
Isocrates in the Panegyricus [says] "speaking old-fashionedly", that is, using rather archaic words.[2] But Demosthenes in [the] Philippics [sc. is found] saying "they behaved so old-fashionedly, or rather, like good citizens";[3] he chose [this word] instead of simply.

[2] Isocrates 4.8 (web address 1), which in fact uses a)rxai/ws, the adverb cognate with the present headword a)rxai=os. The Suda has attributed to Isocrates another adverb, a)rxaiotro/pws, which comes from ancient commentary on the passage: see Harpokration s.v. a)rxai/ws.
