orion Question About Aeons

I wonder if someone could define the word 'aeon' in the context of the
gnostic texts.  My impression is that it refers to the creation of a
dwelling place.

The reason I'm interested concerns Ptolemy's cartouche which contain the
phrase 'aionobiou' (currently translated to mean 'living forever').   The
symbol for 'earth' or 'land' is contained within the Egyptian symbols which
corresponds to 'aion', again  suggestive of a place as opposed to a condition.
