Headword: Ἐπιφάνιον
Adler number: epsilon,2740
Translated headword: Epiphanios; Epiphany
Vetting Status: high
[Singular] Ἐπιφάνιον [is attested] and [so is the neuter plural] τὰ Ἐπιφάνια .
Greek Original:
Ἐπιφάνιον καὶ τὰ Ἐπιφάνια.
The primary headword here is either a neuter singular or else the accusative of the masculine proper name Epiphanios (cf. epsilon 2741, epsilon 2742, epsilon 2743, epsilon 2744); the latter would be much the better attested.
The Christian feast of the Epiphany is normally either τὰ ἐπιφάνια (neuter plural) or ἡ ἐπιφάνεια (feminine singular) — for the latter, see epsilon 2739 — or else Theophany, τὰ θεοφάνια or ἡ θεοφάνεια (see theta 193).
Keywords: biography; Christianity; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion
