Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

A technical expression of unclear meaning and therefore etymologically difficult. According to Petersson, it is related to Armenian սարիք (sarikʿ, sling, rope) as well as to սարդ (sard, spider), while Cimochowski connected it with Albanian thur (twine, weave). All these connections derive from Proto-Indo-European *ḱer- (to plait, weave).
