  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Eozoic  \E`o*zo"ic\,  a.  [See  {Eozo["o]n}.]  (Geol.) 
  Of  or  pertaining  to  rocks  or  strata  older  than  the  Paleozoic, 
  in  many  of  which  the  eozo["o]n  has  been  found 
 
  Note:  This  term  has  been  proposed  for  the  strata  formerly 
  called  Azoic,  and  is  preferred  especially  by  those 
  geologists  who  regard  the  eozo["o]n  as  of  organic 
  origin.  See  {Arch[ae]an}.
