Re: Meaning of the name Antipater

Sorry, when I wrote this in my previous post "So we are stuck with "ant", "anta", "ante" and "anti" and as far as I can tell, none of these really could describe a meaning of "like" or "alike", as your source states. Thus is the meaning of Antioch, Antochus, as "like the father" or "father like", a real meaning or was this meaning just surmised, or created to fit a situation? Who really knows for sure?" Obviously I became somewhat confused and should have written "Antipater" where I wrote "antioch" and "antiochus" ! But it would work in the same manner.
