"Rev 6:2--toxon--a bow--an arc"

Hello, John and Doves,
Here is a rundown in Latin and Greek of Revelation 6:2.

{6:2} Et vidi: et ecce equus albus, et qui sedebat super illum habebat arcum, et data est ei corona, et exivit vincens ut vinceret.
{6:2} And I saw, and behold, a white horse. And he who was sitting upon it was holding a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he went forth conquering, so that he might prevail.
