Proto-Italic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

*djous + *patēr, corresponding to Proto-Indo-European Dyēus ph₂ter.

Proper noun[edit]

*djous patēr m

  1. Jupiter, the Sky Father

Declension[edit]

The attestation of the Umbrian dative [script needed] (iuvepatre), with both parts inflected separately, suggests that the two parts were still morphologically distinct. See the declensions of *djous and *patēr.
