ἄνθραξ

ἄνθραξ, -ᾰκος
Grammatical information: m.
Meaning: `charcoal' (Ar.), metaph. `carbuncle' (Arist.).
Other forms: mostly pl. ἄνθρακες
Derivatives: Many deriv., e.g. ἀνθρακών m. `heap of coals' (Hdn.).
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: One compares Arm. ant`-el `charcoal', and further Georg. *nt` in v-a-nt`-ab `kindle' (Vogt NTS 9,333), but the formations are quite different. S. Winter Prothet. Vokal 45. - Fur. 197, 393 compares ἀνδράχλη `warming-pan, brazier' Eust. (cf. ἀνθράκιον `brazier'); further κάνδαρος ἄνθραξ H. (391) with κ-\/zero; cf. the suffix -ακ- (Bee. Pre-Gr.). So substr. origin is clear. (Comparison with Hitt. ant- `warm' is useless: it does not explain the formation of the Greek word.)
