- ᾰ̓μφῐ́ (amphí)
From Proto-Indo-European *h₂m̥bʰi (“round about, around”), same source as Old High German umbi (“around”), Old Irish imb, Old English bī (“near, by”), Latin ambi-, Sanskrit अभितस् (abhítas, “on both sides”).
ᾰ̓μφῐ́ς • (amphís)
While ἀμφίς is technically simply an alternative spelling of ἀμφί, in practice the former generally functions as an adverb, and the latter as a preposition. Both are largely replaced by περί in later Greek.
