Notes
Citation: Beekes, Robert. 2010. Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Leiden: Brill. Pages: View Attic καίω may be explained as a yod-present from *κάϝ-ι̯ω, ultimately from PIE *keh₂u̯-i̯e/o-. Possibly related to Baltic material in Lith. kū̃lės 'Brandpilze, Flugbrand, Staubbrand des Getreides', kūlė́ti 'brandig werden', Latv. kūla, 'old, dry, grass of last year'.
