Against these very natural etymologies the philologists support a theory that Prometheus is really a Greek form of pramantha (Skt.), the fire-stick of the Hindus.
In other respects the languages are remarkably alike, the only striking difference being in the numeral "one" - Skt.
NIRVANA, the term in Buddhist theology, meaning literally " blowing out " or " dying out," Skt.
Sommer, probably connected with Skt.
Some of these arise from the umlaut or epenthesis which is so prevalent, and which we have already seen in airya- as compared with the Skt.
