According to Souter Lex. s.v. ὁμοίωμα, ";a thing made like"; something else (concrete), differs from ὁμοιότης, ";resemblance";(abstract), much as simulacrum differs from similitudo. As distinguished from εἰκών, which implies an archetype, the ";likeness"; or ";form"; in ὁμοίωμα may be accidental, as one egg is like another : cf. Romans 5:14, Philippians 2:7, and see Trench Syn. p. 47 ff. The word is found in a difficult context in OGIS 669.52 (i/A.D.) καὶ νῦν τοῖς αὐτοῖς παραγγέλλω μηδὲν ἐξ ὁμοιώμα [τος ἐπι ]γράφειν ἀλ [λ ]αχῆι ἄλλο τι τῶν καθόλου χωρὶς τοῦ κρεῖναι τὸν ἔπαρχον.
