*ka-mo-se* | γάμος (gamos) | marriage, wedlock, † union
While there is a strong case for gamos as the institution of marriage, in context, political union is also possible. *ka-mo-se is the antonym of *ta-mo-ne † “separation”.
Syntax: ti-mo*ka-mo-se*e-mi > τῖμο γάμος ἐμέ (timo gamos eme) “For my part, I honor union.”

ICS 260 (IGN)
ka-ru-xe* is found in ka-ru-xe-e-mi, an anthroponym that includes the enclitic, e-mi > ἐμί(ν) “I (am)” or ἠμί “I declare (that I am)” and that may be translated as either κᾶρυξεμί “(a) herald I (am)” or κᾶρυξ ἠμί “I declare (that I am a) herald”. The modern-Greek equivalent of ka-ru-xe-e-mi is κήρυκας ειμαι “(a) preacher (I) am”. The herald typically carried a κηρύκειονa (kirykeiona) “a caduceus”, which was “a wand that was entwined with two serpents, such as [that] borne by Hermes” [L&S 2nd].
ka-te-te | καθετή(ρ) (kateter) | that which is let down, that which is inserted
Cf. catheter. In context, that which is “let down” is a cautery.

kolo | κῶλο(ν) (kolon) | a limb, a member

At the core of these ideas appears to be κῶλον, “a limb” that may be κόλος “amputated” or χωλός “crippled, lame”. Cf. also κῶλον with colony, which implies a member of the mother country. ICS 219 appears to be a broken cautery that was used to cauterize ko-lo “an amputated limb”. See also ki-a-i.
