See Definition for typos { [G5179]}
See Definition for antitypos { [G499]}

typos has many meanings, among the most common being image,
pattern or model, and type. In the last sense it means a
person or thing prefiguring a future person or thing, e.g., Adam as a
type of Christ, Ro 5:14.

antitypos, as used in 1Pe 3:21, is by Thayer and many others
thought to correspond to typos as its counterpart, in the sense which
the English word antitype suggests. By Cremer it is rather given the
meaning image.
