onoma  Term Image (ονομα) Script Image
(Language:  Greek)
Alternate Spellings:
Short Description: a noun as distinct from a verb
Long Description: word, name; a noun as distinct from a verb; for Proclus, a name is an eikon of a paradeigma, a copy of a model; the words ( onomata) are agalmata, the audible ‘icons’ or ‘statues’ of the higher divine realities, therefore true names are naturally appropriate, like images that reflect the form of the object, or like artistic icons that reflect the Platonic Forms rather that objects of the sensible world.
