An animal of the monkey tribe (1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21 ). It was brought from India by the fleets of Solomon and Hiram, and was called by the Hebrews Koph_, and by the Greeks _kepos , both words being just the Indian Tamil name of the monkey, kapi, i.e., swift, nimble, active. No species of ape has ever been found in Palestine or the adjacent regions.
