So, I think, like we have agreed, the best translation is "being."

So, "One being who is the word incarnate." Is equivalent to Cyril's "One nature of the incarnate word."

Good? One Individual Subsistence that has all the properties of humanity and divinity united in a single being.

Good enough.

I would assume you are not  a fan of Vatican II then  ;)

No.
Does anyone know what S. Athanasius meant by assumption of Manhood into God?

You mean from his creed? Probably in regards to the incarnation.

God assumed the flesh of man in the Christ, without losing His Divinity.

Not in the Christ, as though he were distinct from the manhood, but as Christ, he fully made the manhood one with his divinity.
