Etymology 2Edit

Inherited from Old East Slavic кубъ (kubŭ, drinking vessel) [14th century], further origin uncertain.

Cognate with Ukrainian куб (kub, wooden dish), Polish kubek (bowl, cup), Lower Sorbian kub (bowl, cup), also kubk.

Per Vasmer, likely related to Sanskrit कुम्भ (kumbha, pot), Avestan 𐬑𐬎𐬨𐬠𐬀(xumba, pot), Ancient Greek κύμβος (kúmbos, vessel), κύβη (kúbē, cup), also κύμβη (kúmbē).

However Trubachev notes that there are no signs of a nasal vowel and reconstructs Proto-Slavic *kubъ, thus rejecting possible link to Proto-Indo-European *kumbʰo-, *kumbʰéh₂- (vessel) and proposing connection to *koubʰ-.
