u-do-ro | ὕδωρ (hudor or hydor) | water
PY Tn 996 (Scribe Cii)
u-do-ro may also be found in the water-related prefix, ύδρο- (hudro or hydro-) and in ὕδρος (hudros or hydros) “water serpent”, which is found in the myth of the many-headed Hydra. Cf. ὑγρός (hugros or hygros) “fluid, moist, wet”. On PY Tn 996, u-do-ro *212 VAS “water” is followed by pi-a2-ra *219VAS, perhaps “olive oil”.
