Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Compared with Icelandic drambr (knag, knot), however a direct connection is impossible. The same holds with Lithuanian dramblys (elephant) and Latvian dramblis (glutton). Within Greek, the word is generally compared with τρέφω (tréphō, to curdle): since this verb does not have a convincing Indo-European etymology, the present word would be of Pre-Greek origin too.

Noun[edit]

θρόμβος (thrómbosm (genitive θρόμβου); second declension
