EtymologyEdit

Considering Cretan forms (ἀβλοπής (ablopḗs) for ἀβλαβής (ablabḗs) and ἀβλοπία (ablopía) for ἀβλαβεία (ablabeía)) βλαβ- perhaps resulted from βλαπ- by assimilation, but the interchanges α/ο and β/π are typical of Pre-Greek. See also βλάσφημος (blásphēmos), Latin mulcō (I beat, maltreat), Sanskrit मृच् (mṛc, threatening or injury) and मर्चयति (marcayati, to hurt, injure).
