V.), Romphan (or Rompha), a Coptic pr. name of Saturn: Acts 7:43, from Amos 5:26 where the Sept. render by Ραιφαν (or Ρ᾽εφαν) the Hebrew כִּיוּן, thought by many to be equivalent to the Syriac nw)K [], and the Arabic designations of Saturn; but by others regarded as an appellative, signifying 'stand,' 'pedestal' (German Gerüst; so Hitzig), or 'statue' (so Gesenins), formed from כּוּן after the analogy of such forms as חִבּוּק, פִּגּוּל, etc. Cf.
