Frisk Etymological English

Grammatical information: m.
Meaning: 1. kind of shoe; also 2. a musical instrument. H. Poll. 4, 60: ἔνιοι δε την ψιθὺραν την αὐτην εἶναι τῳ̃ ἀσκάρῳ ὀνομαζομένῳ νομίζουσιν. And ἄσκαροι· γένος ὑποδημάτων η σανδαλίων H.
Origin: XX [etym. unknown]
Etymology: Unknown. The musical instrument was a square with strings, so it has nothing to do with the shoe. Fur. analyses the shoe as -αρος and ἀσκός skin, bag made of a skin. Unclear ἀσκαροφόρον φορτηγόν H. (so ἄσκαρος bag, pack, load?) Cf. ἀσκέρα and ἀσκηρά.
