Achamoth

Achamoth is an alternate title for the Gnostic Sophia as an allegory of the sphere of the zodiac; achamoth is equivalent to the Hebrew Chokmah, the sphere of wisdom. While the original Sophia remains within the Pleroma, Sophia-achamoth is trapped outside. http://altreligion.about.com/library/glossary/bldefachamoth.htm
