Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly from Pre-Greek, or from an older, obsolete verb meaning "to drive away," as in evil (via Klein from Usener).[1] Socrates in Cratylus connects it, probably incorrectly, to ἀπόλλυμι ‎(apóllumi, to destroy), ἀπολούων ‎(apoloúōn, washing), ἀπολύων ‎(apolúōn, delivering), ἁπλοῦν ‎(haploûn, simple), and ἀειβάλλων ‎(aeibállōn, always shooting).
