Ῥεμφάν (R G), or Ρ᾽εφαν (L Tr), or Ρ᾽ομφαν (T) (or Ρ᾽ομφα WH, see their Appendix on Acts as below), Remphan (so A. V.), or Rephan (so R. V.), Romphan (or Rompha), a Coptic pr. name of Saturn: Acts 7:43, from Amos 5:26 where the Sept. render by Ραιφαν (or Ρ᾽εφαν) the Hebrew כִּיוּן, thought by many to be equivalent to the Syriac nw)K [], and the Arabic designations of Saturn; but by others regarded as an appellative, signifying 'stand,' 'pedestal' (German Gerüst; so Hitzig), or 'statue' (so Gesenins), formed from כּוּן after the analogy of such forms as חִבּוּק, פִּגּוּל, etc. Cf. Winers RWB, under the word Saturn; Gesenius, Thesaurus, p. 669{b}; J. G. Müller in Herzog xii. 736; Merx in Schenkel i., p. 516f; Schrader in Riehm, p. 234; (Baudissin in Herzog edition 2 under the word Saturn, and references there given; B. D., under the word ).
