Notes
Citation: Beekes, Robert. 2010. Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Leiden: Brill. Pages: View Etymology uncertain. Previous proposed connections with the same root as in 'fall' /cognate/1991/ is unlikely as this root is now reconstructed *peth₁- from which one would expect †ποτέμος. The previous proposal with *peth₂- 'fly' /cognate/1486/ (which used to be considered identical with /cognate/1991/ as *pet-) is possible, but not certain. Also possible is that the word was borrowed into Greek from a substrate language.
