Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀρχαῖος archaîos, ar-khah'-yos; from G746; original or primeval:—(them of) old (time).
STRONGS G744:
ἀρχαῖος, -αία, -αῖον (from ἀρχή beginning, hence) properly, that has been from the beginning, original, primeval, old, ancient, used of men, things, times, conditions: Luke 9:8, 19; Acts 15:7, 21; Acts 21:16; 2 Peter 2:5; Revelation 12:9; Revelation 20:2; οἱ ἀρχαῖοι the ancients, the early Israelites: Matthew 5:21, 27 [Rec.], Matthew 5:33; τὰ ἀρχαῖα the man's previous moral condition: 2 Corinthians 5:17. (In Greek writings from Pindar and Herodotus down.)
[Synonyms ἀρχαῖος, παλαιός: in παλ. the simple idea of time dominates, while ἀρχ. ("σημαίνει καὶ τὸ ἀρχῆς ἔχεσθαι," and so) often carries with it a suggestion of nature or original character. Cf. Schmidt ch. 46; Trench § 67.]
