    Yes, Taru/Tarhu/Tahunna/Tarhunt, etc.

    Illuyanka was a dragon. And I didn't say Illuyanka. But I do think that Illuyanka may come from the same PIE *wel root as gel/gegh. Wel also meant "to turn,...

    Aga, possibly, but it seems to come from a different PIE root (*h₂egʰ-).

    For Angegh (a separate deity from Tork Angegh), a connection has been made to Nergal and Tarhu.

    Do you happen to have a source for Angel/Angegh=Agos?

    The root of agos is PIE Hyeh₂ǵ- (to revere).

    The root of Armenian angegh is PIE *wel (to see). Angel/Angegh meant "unseen" (i.e....

    According to Demetrios, it's either Mycenaean or Iranian. The link I provided suggested that it was a loan. If it's a loan, it's not "pure Greek." If it's an Iranian loan, it may only have been...
