Theorem equvini 2374
Description: A variable introduction law for equality. Lemma 15 of [Monk2] p. 109, however we do not require 𝑧 to be distinct from 𝑥 and 𝑦. See equvinv 2003 for a shorter proof requiring fewer axioms when 𝑧 is required to be distinct from 𝑥 and 𝑦. (Contributed by NM, 10-Jan-1993.) (Proof shortened by Andrew Salmon, 25-May-2011.) (Proof shortened by Wolf Lammen, 15-Sep-2018.)
