κυλίνδω

Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

Often connected with Proto-Indo-European *(s)kel- (to crook, bend), but Beekes doesn't find this convincing. The same element -νδ- is found also in ἀλινδέω (alindéō, to roll in the dust) and καλινδέομαι (kalindéomai, to roll about), suggesting a Pre-Greek origin. Also compare κῶλον (kôlon, member) and κυλλός (kullós, crooked).
