Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2030: ἐπόπτης

ἐπόπτης, ἐπόπτου, (from unused ἐπόπτω);

1. an overseer, inspector, see ἐπίσκοπος; (Aeschylus, Pindar, others; of God, in 2 Macc. 3:39 2Macc. 7:35; 3Macc. 2:21; Additions to Esther 5:1; ἀνθρωπίνων ἔργων, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 59, 3 [ET]).

2. a spectator, eye-witness of anything: so in 2 Peter 1:16; inasmuch as those were called ἐπόπται by the Greeks who had attained to the third (i. e. the highest) grade of the Eleusinian mysteries (Plutarch, Alcib. 22, and elsewhere), the word seems to be used here to designate those privileged to be present at the heavenly spectacle of the transfiguration of Christ.

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance

From epi and a presumed derivative of optanomai; a looker-on -- eye-witness.
