Adler number: gamma,274

Proper name.
Greek Original:
*giw/ras: o)/noma ku/rion.
Likewise, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (246). The headword occurs in Isaiah 14.1 LXX, where in fact it seems to be used in lower case, and has been construed to mean a stranger (cf. gamma 218, gamma 219). However, it is apparently a proper name -- Simon, son of Gioras -- in Josephus' Jewish War; and Theodoret in his Commentary on Isaiah claims it to be Greek for Jacob.
