Cognate: 262 amarántinos (an adjective, akin to 263 /amárantos, "unfading") – properly, the substance of amaranths (a flower in antiquity which symbolized what could never fade), i.e. unfading and hence imperishable (incorruptible, used only in 1 Pet 5:4). Observe also the -inos suffix which shows this term emphasizes how the substance of the crown of glory given to elders connects them to the unfading glory of God. See 263 (amarantos).

[The amaranth flower has incredible resiliency (ability to endure). It easily revives when moistened, even after it is uprooted.]
