Thayer's Greek LexiconSTRONGS NT 707: Ἁριμαθαία
Ἁριμαθαία (WH Ἁριμαθαία, see their Introductory § 408), Ἁριμαθαίας, ἡ, Arimathaea, Hebrew רָמָה (a height), the name of several cities of Palestine; cf. Gesenius, Thesaurus 3, p. 1275. The one mentioned in Matthew 27:57; Mark 15:43; Luke 23:51; John 19:38 appears to have been the same as that which was the birthplace and residence of Samuel, in Mount Ephraim: 1 Samuel 1:1, 19, etc. the Sept. Αρμαθαιμ, and without the article Ρ᾽αμαθεμ, and according to another reading Ρ᾽αμαθαιμ, 1 Macc. 11:34; Ρ᾽αμαθα in Josephus, Antiquities 13, 4, 9. Cf. Grimm on 1 Macc. 11:34; Keim, Jesus von Naz. 3:514; (B. D. American edition).
