 Argyle (2 syl.)Arideus [A-ree’-de-us] 
E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
The followers of Arius, a presbyter of the church of Alexandria, in the fourth century. He maintained (1) that the Father and Son are distinct beings; (2) that the Son, though divine, is not equal to the Father; (3) that the Son had a state of existence previous to His appearance on earth, but not from eternity; and (4) that the Messiah was not real man, but a divine being in a case of flesh.   1
