STRONGS NT 398: ἀναφαίνω

ἀναφαίνω: 1 aorist ἀνεφανα, Doric for the more common ἀνεφηνα (Acts 21:3 R T WH (with Erasm., Stephanus Thesaurus, Mill); cf. Passow, p. 2199; (Veitch, and Liddell and Scott, under the word φαίνω; Winers Grammar, 89 (85); Buttmann, 41 (35)); see ἐπιφαίνω); passive (present ἀναφαίνομαι); 2 aorist ἀνεφανην; (from Homer down); to bring to light, hold up to view, show; passive to appear, be made apparent: Luke 19:11. An unusual phrase is ἀναφανέντες τήν τήν Κύπρον having sighted Cyprus, for ἀναφανεισης ἡμῖν τῆς Κύπρου, Acts 21:3; cf. Buttmann, 190 (164); Winers Grammar, § 39, 1 a., p. 260 (244); here Rst T WH (see above) read ἀναφάναντες ... τήν Κύπρον after we had rendered Cyprus visible (to us); (R. V. had come in sight of Cyprus.).
