Etymology[edit]

From *պարշտեմ (*parštem), from *պարիշտեմ (*parištem), from *պարիշտ (*parišt), from Parthian *parišt-, from Iranian *pari-štā- (literally standing around).

The earlier form *պարիշտ (*parišt) survives in compounds: բարեպարիշտ (bareparišt), կռապարիշտ (kṙaparišt), ամբարիշտ (ambarišt), etc. See also պաշտօն (paštōn).
