Aeon has more than one definition. It can be a symbol, in which case it represents a stage on the spiritual path.
But as a concept it was used in Gnosticism and was defined as meaning 'an archetypal power - the first created spiritual beings or entities', in effect it was a synonym for the Intelligences.
Although the two definitions appear to be totally at odds, they are not. The stage of the spiritual path symbolised by the word Aeon is the very last - that of annihilation and via annihilation, one becomes a 'god', albeit a very minor god, and thus a part of the Intelligence hierarchy.
