βαλανεῖον

βαλανεῖον
Grammatical information: n.
Meaning: `warm bath, -room' (Ar.).
Derivatives: βαλανεύς m. `bath-man' (Ar.) basis of deriv. (cf. κναφεῖον : κναφεύς etc..)? Also βαλανίτης (-είτης, s. Redard, Noms grecs en -της 12, 38) `bather' (Plb.). βαλανάριον n. (pap., inscr.) with the Lat. Suffix -ārium.
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: An attempt to derive the word from βάλανος `acorn' as `stopper' in DELG; improbable. For bathing with warm water, which is prob. an Aegaean custom, we expect a Pre-Gr. word, like ἀσάμινθος. The structure of the word is typically Pre-Gr.: βαλ-αν- (with β-, -α-, -αν-). - From βαλανεῖον Lat. bal(i)neum.
