EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Italic *perth, *pertikā, see also Oscan 𐌐𐌄𐌓𐌄𐌊 (perek, pole), Umbrian 𐌐𐌄𐌓𐌊𐌀𐌅 (perkav, rod). Possibly from Proto-Indo-European *pertʰ- (pole, sprout) (Ancient Greek πτόρθος (ptórthos, sprout), Sanskrit कपृथ् (kapṛth, penis)), though de Vaan dismisses this as unconvincing.

Compare ridica (stake).
