This article examines possible solutions to a passage in the sixth-century Syriac translation of Gregory of Nyssa's De anima et resurrectione, in which the Greek μενει stands behind the Syriac verb. The established meaning of this verb does not match the Syriac context considered in itself, nor the underlying Greek word. The possibility of an Arabic loanword is considered, but the sixth-century date of the translation makes that unlikely, and it is concluded that the original text must have been, which was then miscopied as by a later scribe under Arabic influence.
