Æon (Greek, aion)

,

eternity, an immeasurable length of time; any being that is eternal. Basilidēs reckons there have been 365 such æons, or gods; but Valentinius restricts the number to 30. Sometimes written “ēon.”

In geology each series of rocks covers an æon, or an indetinite and immeasurable period of time.
