a figure, model, typeDefinition:
(originally: the mark of a blow, then a stamp struck by a die), (a) a figure; a copy, image, (b) a pattern, model, (c) a type, prefiguring something or somebody.
5179 týpos (from 5180 /týptō, "strike repeatedly") – properly, a model forged by repetition; (figuratively) the correct paradigm, based on reliable precedent for others to then follow, (i.e. the right example, a proper pattern).
[In the papyri, 5179 (týpos) means "pattern" (P Ryl II. 75.8). 5179 (týpos) is also used of a judicial proceeding, "Let an inquiry be made into his means; only there is a principle according to which I have often judged" (MM, 645).]
