Probably related to the Gk. */o/-stem masculine pÒloj ‘axle’ from */kwol-o-/, but one cannot rule out a connection to the Gk. e. a ‘full circle’. This would, however, imply an early assimilation, predating the First Palatalization, from PSl. */kela-/ to */kala-/, something for which there is no supporting evidence (cp. selo ‘village’). divo (stem dives-) ‘wonder, miracle’.
