Etymology, Romanian, Scovergă

Etymology From Proto-Slavic *skovorda (“frying pan”), likely borrowed from the Ancient Greek or Iranian source of Old Armenian սկաւառակ (skawaṙak, “saucer, plate”), which probably represents Iranian *skavarid-ak, containing the well-known suffix -ակ (-ak). Compare Persian سکوره‎ (sukôra, “earthen dish, saucer”), Ancient Greek σκευάριον (skeuárion), σκευαρίδιον (skeuarídion, “small vessel”). Also found in Lithuanian skarvadà (“frying pan”). Noun scovergă f (plural scovergi) (usually in the plural) fried pie (sometimes with cheese filling)
