What is the ancient Greeek word for the language "Aramaic"?

I found this Greek word: " Ἑβραΐς " which translates as "Hebrew". But I want to know what the ancient word for "Aramaic" would have been around 1900 years ago. They were two different languages, with similarities and the same alphabet, but there would have been two separate words for the two languages. Wouldn't there?

I found the modern Greek word for Aramaic, but I'm wondering if it would have been different in ancient Greek.
