STRONGS NT 1085a: ΓερασηνόςΓερασηνός, Γερασηνου, , Gerasene, i. e. belonging to the city Gerasa (τά Γέρασα, Josephus, b. j. 3, 3, 3): Matthew 8:28 (Lachmann); Mark 5:1 (L T WH Tr text); Luke 8:26 and 37 (L Tr WH) according to very many manuscripts seen by Origen. But since Gerasa was a city situated in the southern part of Peraea (Josephus, the passage cited, cf. 4, 9, 1), or in Arabia (Origen, Works, iv. 140, De la Rue edition), that cannot be referred to here; see Γαδαρηνός, and the next word.
