GOTHOLIAS. KJV and ASV Apoc. form of Gotholiah.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Father of Josias, one of the sons of Elam who returned from Babylon with Ezra (1 Esdras 8:33). The name corresponds to Athaliah, the Greek Gotholias being substituted for the Hebrew guttural `ayin, as in Gomorrah, Gaza, etc. Taken with 2Ki 11:1, the name would seem to have been used for both men and women.
