Citation: Beekes, Robert. 2010. Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Leiden: Brill. Pages: View Beekes (2010) suggests that since Mycenaean e-ra-pe-me-na (perf.participle) does not show initial /w/ that the traditional etymology connecting ῥάπτω with Lith. ver̃pti, 'spin', Latv. virpêt 'spin with a spindle' must be abandoned.
