  1. anthropos = an individual of the Genus Homo; a human being as distinct from animals. See Appendix 98. XVI, for "the Son of man".
  2. aner = an adult male person. Latin vir an honourable title (as distinct from a mere "man", No. 1); hence, used of a husband.

  4. arren = a male; of the male sex.
  5. arsen. = The same as No. 4; being the old Ionic form, as No. 4 is the later Attic form.
