Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַפִּרְיוֹן m. a litter, palanquin, once found Song of Solomon 3:9 LXX., Vulg. φορεῖον (litter, comp. Athen. v. ), ferculum. [“Talmud אַפִּרְיוֹן and פּוּרְיָא bed.”] It answers to the Syriae ܦܘܽܪܝܳܐ, which is rendered by Castell, solium, sella, lectulum, although without giving his authority (prob. out of Barbahlul); also, Chald. אַפּוּרְיָא (with Aleph prosthetic), which is also given in this place by the Targumist, and Song of Solomon 1:16 for the Heb. עֶרֶשׂ. The root פְּרָה, Ch. פְּרָא to run, prop. to be borne, to be borne quickly (compare פָּרָה, φέρω, fero), like currus a currendo, τρόχος from τρέχειν, φορεῖον ferculum from φέρειν, ferre. Those who impugn this etymology of this Hebrew word, should also have something to oppose to the similar, and, at the same time, most certain etymology of the Greek and Latin words just cited. To me אַפִּרְיוֹן and φορεῖον and ferculum appear to come from one and the same original stock (פָּרָה, פָּרָא, φέρω, fero, fahren).
