Etymology

From Proto-Italic *apō, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ep- (to get, grab). Cognate with apex, Hittite 𒄩𒀊 (ḫapp-, to join, attach), Ancient Greek ἅπτω (háptō, I fasten).

The term is only attested in another form than the participle in the work of the grammarian Sextus Pompeius Festus and in the Etymologiae of Saint Isidore of Seville.

Pronunciation

  • (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈa.poː/, [ˈäpoː]
  • (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈa.po/, [ˈäːpɔ]

Verb

apō (present infinitive apere, perfect active apī, supine aptum); third conjugation

  1. I fasten; attach, connect; join, bind
    • 8th C. C.E., Paulus Diaconus (author), Karl Otfried Müller (editor), Excerpta ex libris Pompeii Festi De significatione verborum (1839), page 17, line 9:
      Apex, quod est sacerdotum īnsigne, dictus est ab eō, quod comprehendere antīquī vinculō apere dīcēbant. Unde aptus est, quī conventienter alicui iūnctus est.
      The apex, which is the ensign of the Flamen, is called so because of the fact that in, the old language, tying with a rope was called apere. Whence aptus is something which is conventiently joined to something.
