Old Armenian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Grown with a prothetic ե- (e-) from Middle Iranian *rēvant, from Proto-Iranian *raivant-, *rayivant- (possessing wealth). Compare Avestan 𐬭𐬀𐬉𐬬𐬀𐬥𐬙 (raēvant, rich, splendid), 𐬭𐬀𐬫𐬌 (rayi, wealth), Sanskrit रेवत् (revat, wealthy), रयिवत् (rayivat, possessing wealth), रयि (rayi, wealth).[1]

On the other hand, Hübschmann derived from Middle Iranian *arvant- (swift); compare Middle Persian [Book Pahlavi needed] (ʾlwnd /arwand/, swift, valiant), Avestan 𐬀𐬎𐬭𐬎𐬎𐬀𐬧𐬙 (auruuaṇt, swift, vigorous, brave).[2][3] But this is unlikely, as *arvant- would have yielded Old Armenian *Արուանդ (*Aruand).[1]

Corresponds to Ancient Greek Ὀρόντης (Oróntēs) of Classical authors.
