[B-Greek] AKROBUSTIA vs APERITMHTOS

BlankAKROBUSTIA seems to be the term commonly used in the NT in reference to
uncircumcision, whereas APERITMHTOS is used only once (Acts 7:51), I
believe.  If anyone is so inclined, I would appreciate an explanation as to
the differences between these two terms, and why the NT writers preferred
the former when referring to uncircumcision.  Could they not just as easily
have used the latter term?  Isn't APERITMHTOS directly related to PERITEMNW?

Many thanks, good friends.
