My Concordant Greek Text accepts the EDUSEN reading with the notation
that Sinaiticus and Alexandrinys both omit the -SEN, which leaves it in
the Vaticanus only of the three mss that this source concords. Their
[brutal] sublinear 'transliteration' reads "when slips the sun"... And
in regular [Concordant] translation it reads "when the sun sets", which
leaves open any more precise temporal rendition, and may favor 2 over 1,
but not by much! :-)
The immediate context of 'evening coming on' would seem to argue for its
meaning as simply the "conclusion" of that process.
NA 25 also accepts EDUSEN rather than EDU. I don't have the TR.
