Cappadocian GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

Related to Old Armenian գայլիկոն (gaylikon), possibly borrowed from it.[1][2] Karolides compares with Sanskrit शल्य (śalya, arrow)[3], but the comparison is unconvincing[2].

NounEdit

καλακόνι (kalakóni)[4][5][6]

  1. (Pharasa) borer, gimlet (tool for cutting holes)
