  1. Aeon: The word aeon, also spelled eon, originally means "life" or "being", though it then tended to mean "age" in the sense of TIME - Ages - "forever" or "for eternity". It is a Latin transliteration from the koine Greek word ὁ αἰών, from the archaic αἰϝών. In Homer it typically refers to life or lifespan. Its latest meaning is more or less similar to the Sanskrit word kalpa and Hebrew word olam. A cognate Latin word aevum or aeuum for "age" is present in words such as longevity and mediaeval.
  2. Aeon: In many Gnostic systems, various emanations of "God" are known by such names as One, Monad, Aion teleos, Bythos, Proarkhe, Arkhe, and Aeons.

In Basilidian Gnosis they are called sonships; according to Marcus, they are numbers and sounds; in Valentinianism they form male/female pairs called syzygies.
