ARVIRARGUS

Attested:  Mentioned briefly by the poet Juvenal 4,127.  Built up into a major character (son of Cunobelinus, and therefore possibly based on Caratacus) by Geoffrey of Monmouth, whose work is often considered fiction.

Where:  Rudd argues that Anarevitos was a grandson of Commius who ruled over a quarter of Kent.

Name originProsper (2019) explains this name as ‘great men leader’, where the ar- part came from *φare- ‘in front of, which is cognate with English fore-.
