1: φανός
(Strong's #5322 — Noun Masculine — phanos — fan-os' )

denotes either "a torch" or "a lantern" (from phaino, "to cause to shine, to give light"), John 18:3 , where it is distinguished from lampas (see LAMP , No. 1); it was "a link or torch consisting of strips of resinous wood tied together" (Rutherford). "Torch" would seem to be the meaning.
