Headword: Arês
Adler number: alpha,3852
Translated headword: Ares
Vetting Status: high
Properly [it means] iron.
"Having plunged Ares inside [your] hollow flanks."[1]
It also means war. [The term comes] from the [verb] r(w= [meaning] "I speak,"[2] future r(h/sw, [whence] r(h=s, and with the alpha privative [it is] Ares. For in war there is no need of words, but of actions. And Homer [writes]: "for the outcome of war [lies] in hands, [that] of words in counsel."[3] The alpha [is] both long and short. Homer [writes]: "Ares, Ares, bane of men."[4] It is declined *)/arhs *)/arou and *)/arhs *)/arhtos, and *)/arhs *)/areos.
For [the word] is *)/arhs and confuses the declension.
