Epiphi (Ε᾿πιφί, 3 Macc. 6:38), the name of the eleventh month of the Egyptian Vague year, and the Alexandrian or Egyptian Julian year: Copt. epep; Arab. apib. Its beginning corresponds with the 25th of June in the Julian calendar (Ideler, Handb. d. Chronol. 1:98, 144). In ancient Egyptian it is called "the third month [of] the season of the waters." SEE EGYPT. The name Epiphi is derived from that of the goddess of the month, Apap-t (Lepsius, Chron. d. Eg. 1:141). The supposed derivation of the Hebrew month-name Abib from Epiphi is discussed in other articles. SEE MONTH.
