Ideogrammic compound (會意) – originally (in oracle script) the antler of a buck (at bottom), indicating a savage attack. Subsequently significantly simplified and abstracted: in seal script analyzed as 日 + 出 + 廾, while in current form rather 日 + 共 + 水 (similar to unrelated 異); compare bottom component to bottom right of 様.
