EtymologyEdit

Uncertain. Possibly from Pre-Greek, or from an older, obsolete verb meaning "to drive away," as in evil (via Klein from Usener).[1] Socrates in Cratylus connects it, probably incorrectly, to ἀπόλλυμι (apóllumi, to destroy), ἀπολούων (apoloúōn, washing), ἀπολύων (apolúōn, delivering), ἁπλοῦν (haploûn, simple), and ἀειβάλλων (aeibállōn, always shooting).
