Ancient Greek[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Uncertain. Clearly related to πατέω ‎(patéō, I walk, tread), but which gave rise to which is less clear. It could be an old variant of πόντος ‎(póntos) (and if so, πατέω ‎(patéō) would be the derivative). If so, from Proto-Indo-European *pent- ‎(to go, walk; way). Cognates include Sanskrit पन्थाः ‎(pánthāḥ), Avestan 𐬁𐬙𐬥𐬀𐬞 ‎(pantā), Old Armenian հուն ‎(hun), Proto-Germanic *paþaz, whence English path.
