[*ei)kw= is] the image [ei)ko/na: accusative singular] by apokope.[1] But image [ei)kw/n] is a likeness, from the [verb] ei)/kw, I copy.[2]
NB: the most accurate of the historians say that it is more proper to draw short and curly hair on the image of Christ.[3]
Also [sc. attested is] ei)kw=, the image.
Also [sc. attested is the accusative plural] ei)kou=s, the images. Aristophanes in Clouds [says]: "they [are] imitating my similes of the eels."[4]
