KJV Translation Count — Total: 2x
The KJV translates Strong's G697 in the following manner: Areopagus (1x), Mars Hill (1x).
  1. Areopagus = "martial peak"

    1. a rocky height in the city of Athens, opposite the western end of the Acropolis toward the west.

      This hill belonged to (Ares) Mars and was called Mar's Hill; so called, because, as the story went, Mars, having slain Halirrhothius, son of Neptune, for the attempted violation of his daughter Alicippe, was tried for the murder here before twelve gods as judges. This place was the location where the judges convened who, by appointment of Solon, had jurisdiction of capital offences, (as wilful murder, arson, poisoning, malicious wounding, and breach of established religious usages). The court itself was called Areopagus from the place where it sat, also "Areum judicium" an "curia". To that hill the apostle Paul was not led to defend himself before judges, but that he might set forth his opinions on divine subjects to a greater multitude of people, flocking together there and eager to hear something new.

STRONGS G697:
Ἄρειος [Tdf. Ἀριος] πάγος, -ου, , Areopagus (a rocky height in the city of Athens not far from the Acropolis toward the west; πάγος a hill, Ἄρειος belonging to (Ares) Mars, Mars’ Hill; so called, because, as the story went, Mars, having slain Halirrhothius, son of Neptune, for the attempted violation of his daughter Alcippe, was tried for the murder here before the twelve gods as judges; Pausan. Attic. 1, 28, 5), the place where the judges convened who, by appointment of Solon, had jurisdiction of capital offences (as willful murder, arson, poisoning, malicious wounding, and breach of the established religious usages). The court itself was called Areopagus from the place where it sat, also Areum judicium (Tacitus, ann. 2, 55), and curia Martis (Juvenal, sat. 9, 101). To that hill the apostle Paul was led, not to defend himself before the judges, but that he might set forth his opinions on divine subjects to a greater multitude of people, flocking together there and eager to hear something new: Acts 17:19-22; cf. Acts 17:32. Cf. J. H. Krause in Pauly's Real-Encycl. 2te Aufi. i. 2, p. 1497ff under the word Areopag; [Grote, Hist. of Greece, index under the word; Dictionary of Geographies and Antiquities; BB. DD. under the word; and on Paul's discourse, especially B. D. American edition under the word Areopagus; and on Paul's discourse, especially B. D. American edition under the word Mars’ Hill].
