Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 8: Ἀβιαθάρ

Ἀβιαθάρ, indeclinable proper name (though in Josephus, Antiquities 6, 14, 6 Ἀβιαθάρος, ), אֶבְיָתָר (father of abundance), Abiathar, a certain Hebrew high priest: Mark 2:26 — where he is by mistake confounded with Ahimelech his father (1 Samuel 21:1ff); (yet cf. 1 Samuel 22:20 with 1 Chronicles 18:16; 1 Chronicles 24:6, 31; also 2 Samuel 15:24-29; 1 Kings 2:26, 27 with 2 Samuel 8:17; 1 Chronicles 24:6, 31. It would seem that double names were especially common in the case of priests (cf. 1 Macc. 2:1-5; Josephus, Vit. §§1,2) and that father and son often bore the same name (cf. Luke 1:5, 59; Josephus, the passage cited and Antiquities 20, 9, 1). See McClellan at the passage and B. D. American edition, p. 7).
