EtymologyEdit

(Can this(+) etymology be sourced?) The origin of the term is uncertain; most likely a loan-word from Pre-Greek, possibly Phrygian or Illyrian. Ancient Greek θρι- (thri-) has also been connected with a term for fig tree (compare θρῖον (thrîon, fig leaf)), while -αμβος (-ambos) is probably the same element that also occurs in ἴαμβος (íambos, a poetic meter).
