Etymology

  • Favorinus. Possibly dedicated to the gallo-roman phylosopher Favorinus de Arles (80-160) sophyst, enemy of the stoicism; only fragments of his work are known.
  • Vitreus. Latin word meaning “of glass”, resembling glass in its color (greenish), translucency, or glitter, because of the body transparency.
