Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Furnée pointed out that the traditional derivation from δικεῖν (dikeîn, to cast) is hardly possible, because the suffix "-σκο-" is rare in nominal derivation. Therefore, he suggested to start from *δισκ-, a variant of δικεῖν (dikeîn), which has Pre-Greek origin.
