Etymology[edit]

The origin of the term is uncertain; most likely a loan-word from Pre-Greek, possibly Phrygian or Illyrian. The θρι- has also been connected with a term for "fig tree" (compare θρῖον 'fig leaf')[source?], while -αμβος is probably the same element that also occurs in ἴαμβος "a poetic meter".
