I was just trying to rhyme. Good point though. :smiley:

From the OED:

epitome, n.

  1. A brief statement of the chief points in a literary work; an abridgement, abstract.
    b. A summary or condensed account of anything; a compendium of a subject.
  2. transf. Something that forms a condensed record or representation
