Aterezias
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
The head of a family of exiles that returned with Zerubbabel to Jerusalem and Judah. The name “Aterezias” appears only in the King James Version Apocrypha, which renders 1 Esdras 5:15 by conflating the names “Ater” and “Hezekiah.” Most translations of 1 Esdras 5:15 and parallel lists in the Old Testament (Ezra 2:16; Neh 7:21) say “Ater, namely of Hezekiah,” or “Ater of Hezekiah.”
