ἀφάρκη

ἀφάρκη
Grammatical information: f.
Meaning: name of an evergreen tree, `Arbutus hybrida' (Thphr.).
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: Improbable theory by Strömberg Wortstudien 27ff. (to ἄρκυς with ἀπο-), s. Frisk. Unclear ἀφαρκίδευτον ἀγρευτόν, ἀθυσίαστον H. s. Chantr. Fur. 175 refers to Schwyzer 530, who compares Thess. Φαρκαδών, which would give a prothetic vowel; a substr. word is anyhow probable.
