Translation:
Surface [epiphaneia] is the limit of a body, or that which has length and width but no depth. This is said both in respect to the ideal and in respect to actual existence.[1]
But epiphaneia [is] also the incarnate dispensation of our Savior Jesus Christ.[2]

Ἐπιφάνεια: ἐπιφάνεια ἐστὶ σώματος πέρας, ἢ τὸ μῆκος καὶ πλάτος μόνον ἔχον, βάθος δὲ οὔ. αὐτὴ δὲ κατ' ἐπίνοιαν καὶ καθ' ὑπόστασιν λέγεται. Ἐπιφάνεια δὲ καὶ ἡ τοῦ Σωτῆρος ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ ἔνσαρκος οἰκονομία.
