- a chemical element (symbol Sb) with an atomic number of 51. The symbol is derived from the Latin stibium.
Etymology: Unclear; possibly from the Greek (antimónos), "opposed to solitude", as the element was thought never to exist in its pure form; or from the Pharaonic expression "Antos Ammon", which may be translated as "bloom of the god Ammon."
