Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Eventually from a Pre-Greek or Mediterranean substrate loanword. Latin phasēlus may either be the intermediate source or destination of borrowing, though the diminutives φασίολος (phasíolos), φασίωλος (phasíōlos), πασίολος (pasíolos), and φασιούλυος (phasioúluos) come from the Latin diminutive phaseolus. Albanian bathë (tick-pea), bizele (peas) have led to claims of an Illyrian source.[1]
