By Phonetic Value
PTE (062) |
pte-no | πτηνός (ptenos) | flying, winged
πτερόν (pteron) | a winged creature
Cf. pe-te-re-wa or pte-re-wa > πτελέα (ptelea) “an elm”, which is called “the spreading tree” and which was among the woods used in chariot-wheel construction; see ROTA in the KN So series. In both pte-no and pte-re-wa, the first symbol, B *062, resembles the “horns of consecration”, which may, however, actually represent a wingspread, or the “wings of consecration”.
