Dear B-Greekers,

  hH ARCH being defined as, "the Origin" or "First" where the context
will allow is supported lexically by both Bauer and Thayer. For
example, on page 77 of Thayer under def 3 Thayer tells us that the
first know use of hH ARCH as "the origin" was by the
philosopher Anaximander in 8th cent. B.C. He goes on to give other
examples of historical people who used the word that way. So there
is ample historical support for the word hH ARCH to be used as
"The First cause" or "the origin".
