Armogen is, in the system of the Barbelutse (Ophites) as expounded by Irenaeus (108 ed. Massuet), the second "syzygy," consisting of " Christ" (the Primal Light) and "Incorruption." It thus brings into existence four luminaries or derivative lights to attend upon "Autogenes," the product of the first " syzygy." Of these " the first and great" luminary was "Soter" (Saviour), who was called Armogen. The name is variously written Armogenes, Armoge, and apparently also with the aspirate. See Vallarsi's note on Jerome, Ep. Ixxv, 3. Nosatisfactory derivation is known; for conjectures, see Harvey, On Irenceus, loc. cit.
