English translation (word)
English translation (etymon)
ἄναξ] ἀπὸ τοῦ ἔχειν τὴν ἄνω ἀξίαν
Anax "lord": from the fact he has the higher (anō) dignity (axia)
The word is parsed as a compound, the second element of which is ἀξία "worth". This refers to the upper social position. From the formal point of view, the etymology does not imply the formal manipulations implied by competing etymologies (ἄνω + ἀΐσσω, ἄνω + τάξις).
