Strong's #674 - אַפְּתֹם
1) treasury, treasuries
2) (CLBL) revenue
Jeff Benner, Ancient Hebrew Research Center Used by permission of the author.
אַפְּתֹם adv. Ch. perhaps at length, in the end. the Pers. فدام end, at length, comp. Pehlevi, Afdom, end. It occurs once, Ezra 4:13, אַפְּתֹם מַלְכִים תְּהַנְזִיק “and at length bring damage to the kings,” comp. verses 15 Ezra 4:15, 22 Ezra 4:22, where אַפְּתֹם is not found. The ancient versions [“LXX.וְאַפְּתוֹם καὶ τούτο, Peshito ܘܐܦ ܗܝ”] pass it by in translating; [“Aben Ezra and”] others conjecture from the context, and interpret it treasury, revenue (of kings).
