The name Aries is Latin for ram, and its symbol is (Unicode ♈), representing a ram's horns. Although Aries came to represent specifically the ram whose fleece became the Golden Fleece of Ancient Greek mythology, it has represented a ram since late Babylonian times. Ram is also a figure in the Hebrew Bible. He is the son of Hezron and ancestor of King David. In the New Testament, his name is given as Aram and Arni. About him little is known, except that he must have lived when the Israelites were in Egypt.
