Thrasaeus

THRASAEUS

thra-se'-us (Codex Alexandrinus Swete and Fritzsche Thrasaios; Codex Venetus Tharsiou; Codex Venetus(a) Tharseou; Conjecture of Dr. Hort Tharsea; the King James Version, Thraseas):

The father of APOLLONIUS (which see) (2 Macc 3:5). the Revised Version margin gives "Or `Thrasca.'" The Greek text is probably corrupt. Perhaps the true reading is "Apollonius of Tarsus".
