Etymology[edit]

The origin is uncertain. Has been compared to Ancient Greek ὀσφύς (osphús, loins, lower part of the back) and together with it derived from Proto-Indo-European *h₃st-dʰ-, from *Host- (bone), whence ոսկր (oskr). Alternatively, both may derive from a Mediterranean-Pontic substrate word.
