Etymology 1Edit

Uncertain. Clearly related to πατέω (patéō, I walk, tread), but which gave rise to which is less clear. It could be an old variant of πόντος (póntos) (and if so, πατέω (patéō) would be the derivative). If so, from Proto-Indo-European *pent- (to go, walk; way). Cognates include Sanskrit पन्थाः (pánthāḥ), Avestan 𐬁𐬙𐬥𐬀𐬞(pantā), Old Armenian հուն (hun), Proto-Germanic *paþaz, whence English path.
