  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Cleophas 
  (in  the  spelling  of  this  word  _h_  is  inserted  by  mistake  from 
  Latin  MSS.),  rather  Cleopas,  which  is  the  Greek  form  of  the 
  word  while  Clopas  is  the  Aramaic  form  In  John  19:25  the 
  Authorized  Version  reads,  "Mary,  the  wife  of  Clopas."  The  word 
  wife"  is  conjecturally  inserted  here  If  wife"  is  rightly 
  inserted,  then  Mary  was  the  mother  of  James  the  Less  and  Clopas 
  is  the  same  as  Alphaeus  (Matt.  10:3;  27:56).
