A proper name. The prophetess and [person] of manly mind.
Greek Original:
*debbw/ra: o)/noma ku/rion. h( profh=tis kai\ a)rreno/frwn.
Judges 4:4 etc. She is introduced there as a prophetess (as well as a judge), but the Suda's additional, very rare characterising adjective, a)rreno/frwn, has come from somewhere else, unidentifiable. (Once applied to Deborah, however, this adjective stuck to her: it is used twice of her (lines 1864 and 3197) in the verse Historia Chronica by Ephraem of Aenus, C13/14.)
