STRONGS NT 712: ἄριστον
ἄριστον, -ου, τό, [from Homer down];
a. the first food, taken early in the morning before work, breakfast; dinner was called δεῖπνον. But the later Greeks called breakfast; τὸ ἀκράτισμα, and dinner ἄριστον i. e. δεῖπνον μεσηβρινόν, Athen. 1, 9, 10, p. 11b.; and so in the N. T. Hence,
b. dinner: Luke 14:12 (ποιεῖν ἄριστον δεῖπνον, to which others are invited); Luke 11:38; Matthew 22:4 (ἑτοιμάζειν). [B. D. under the word Meals; Becker's Charicles, namely, vi. excurs. i. (English translation, p. 312f).]
