An animal of the monkey tribe (1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chr. 9:21). It "was brought from India by the fleets of Solomon and Hiram, and" "was called by the Hebrews koph_, and by the Greeks _kepos, both" "words being just the Indian Tamil name of the monkey, kapi," "i.e., swift, nimble, active. No species of ape has ever been" found in Palestine or the adjacent regions.

"A Christian at Rome whom Paul salutes (Rom. 16:10), and styles" approved in Christ.
