1: ναός
(Strong's #3485 — Noun Masculine — naos — nah-os' )

"the inmost part of a temple, a shrine," is used in the plural in Acts 19:24 , of the silver models of the pagan "shrine" in which the image of Diana (Greek Artemis) was preserved. The models were large or small, and were signs of wealth and devotion on the part of purchasers. The variety of forms connected with the embellishment of the image provided "no little business" for the silver-smiths. See TEMPLE.
