homoióma: that which is made like (something)Original Word: ὁμοίωμα, ατος, τόPart of Speech:
a likeness, form, similitudeDefinition:
(originally: a thing made like something else), a likeness, or rather: form; a similitude.
3667 homoíōma (a neuter noun derived from homos, "the same") – properly, the same as; likeness, similitude (resemblance).
3667 /homoíōma ("likeness, particular similarity") is a comparison used to increase understanding. 3667 /homoíōma ("resemblance") does not require one element of a comparison to be derived from the other; indeed, it can be wholly separate from it. Rather, 3667 (homoíōma) refers to a basic analogy (resemblance), not an exact copy.
