The Wings of ConsecrationCf. 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”.
