أَوَانٌ (T, Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ) andإِوَانٌ↓, (T, M, Mṣb, Ḳ,) the latter mentioned by Ks on the authority of Aboo-Jámiʼ, but the former is the usual mode of pronouncing it, (T,) andأَوْنٌ↓, (M,) A time; a season: pl. آوِنَةٌ; (T, Ṣ, M, Mṣb, Ḳ;) but Sb says آوناتٌ; (M; [so in a copy of that work; app. آوِنَاتٌ, as though pl. of آوِنَةٌ;]) and آيِنَةٌ is syn. with آوِنَةٌ. (AA, T, Ḳ.) You say, جَآءَ أَوَانُ البَرْدِ [The time, or season, of cold came]. (T.) And فُلَانٌ يَصْنَعُ ذٰلِكَ الأَمْرَ آوِنَةً, (Ṣ, Ḳ,*) and آيِنَةً, (Ḳ, [in the CK آئِنَةً,]) Such a one does that thing sometimes, leaving it undone sometimes.

* طَلَبُوا صُلْحَنَا وَلَاتَ أَوَانٍ *

(M,) or إِوَانٍ, (L,) [They sought our reconciliation with them, but it was not the time that reconciliation should be sought], accord. to Abu-l- ʼAbbás, the tenween of the last word is not a sign of the genitive case, but is, as in the instance of إِذٍ, because of the suppression of a proposition to which the word should be prefixed, as when you say, جِئْتُ أَوَانَ قَامَ زَيْدٌ I came at the time that Zeyd stood. (M, L.)

(TA.) [The fem. is آئِنَةٌ: the pl. of which is أَوَائِنُ and آئِنَاتٌ.] You say, بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ مَكًّةَ ثَلَاثُ لَيَالٍ أَوَائِنُ Between us and Mekkeh are three nights of easy, or gentle, journeying: (Ṣ, Ḳ:*) and عَشْرُلَيَال آئِنَاتٌ ten nights of easy journeying.
