STRONGS NT 2342: θηρίον
θηρίον, -ου, τό, (diminutive of θήρ; hence, a little beast, little animal; Plato, Theaet., p. 171 e.; of bees, Theocritus, 19, 6; but in usage it had almost always the force of its primitive; the later diminutive is θηρίδιον [cf. Epictetus diss. 2, 9, 6]); [from Homer down]; Sept. for חַיָה and בְּהֵמָה, an animal; a wild animal, wild beast, beast: properly, Mark 1:13; Acts 10:12 Rec.; Acts 11:6; 28:4f; Hebrews 12:20; [James 3:7]; Revelation 6:8; in Revelation 11:7 and Revelation 13-20, under the figurative of a 'beast' is depicted Antichrist, both his person and his kingdom and power, (see ἀντίχριστος); metaphorically, a brutal, bestial man, savage, ferocious, Titus 1:12 [colloquial, 'ugly dogs'], (so in Aristophanes eqq. 273; Plutarch, 439; nub. 184; [cf. Schmidt, chapter 70, 2; apparently never with allusion to the stupidity of beasts]; still other examples are given by Kypke, Observations, ii., p. 379; θηρία ἀνθρωπόμορφα, Ignatius Smyrn. 4, cf. ad Ephes. 7).
