αἰπύς

αἰπύς
Grammatical information: adj.
Meaning: `steep' (Il.)
Other forms: Other stem in αἰπά (αἰπὰ ῥέεθρα Θ 369) and αἰπήν (πόλιν ... αἰπήν γ 130 etc.), maybe a metrical device.
Derivatives: αἰπήεις (Hom.), s. Schwyzer 527: 3 - αἶπος n. (E.) with αἰπεινός (\< *αἰπεσ-νός) .
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]X [probably]
Etymology: No etym. - Here perhaps αἶψα, s. s.v. - Fur. 158 further connects ἐξαιφνής \/ ἐξαπίνης, ἄφνω \/ ἄφαρ, which is as good as that with αἶψα (π\/φ is well known, lab. \/ ψ also, cf. δέφω \/ δέψω, βίττκαος \/ ψιττακός); many Pre-Greek words begin with αἰ-.
