ἐτεός

Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

Possibly cognate with Armenian ստոյգ (stoyg), from Proto-Indo-European *set- (stable, true) (Beekes, 2010).

However, compare Sanskrit सत्य (satya), from Proto-Indo-Iranian *Hsatyás, from Proto-Indo-European *h₁s-n̥t-yós, from *h₁sónts, from *h₁es- (to be), in addition to Albanian jetë.
