Notes From PIE 'fire(place)' (Untermann 2000, de Vaan 2008), cognate with /cognate/1957/.
Citation: Vaan, M. de (2008) Etymological Dictionary of Latin and the ... Pages: View Cognate with Iranian words meaning 'fire' (cf. /cognate/1957/). The Latin derivative ātrium 'first main room in a Roman-style house' seems to indicate that this room originally contained the fire-place. The development of Proto-Italic *ātr-o- appears to have undergone a semantic development 'fireplace-like' > 'having a fireplace-like colour, black'.
