ὁμαλός

See also: ομαλός

Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

The formation is like that of Latin similis (similar) and Old Irish samail (likeness, similarity), thus from Proto-Indo-European *sem-h₂-lo-, from *sem-. The ο- grade of the word is often thought to have been imported from ὁμός (homós, similar). Armenian ամոլ (amol, harnessed pair of cows) is probably unrelated.
