Frisk Etymological English

Grammatical information: m.
Meaning: wisent, the European bison, = βόνασος (Arist.).
Origin: PG [a word of Pre-Greek origin]
Etymology: To conclude on the basis of βόνασος that the word derives from *βόνινθος is most uncertain. Influence of βοῦς is also a mere guess. No etym. Probably Pre-Greek; Krahe, Die Antike 15 (1939)180; Krause, FS Krahe, 62f.
