Greek pho:s "light"
Estonian päev, -a "day", päevitama "sunbathe", päevitunud "sun-burned"



The connection of Finnish päjvä
with Greek Phoibê seems impossible.

Internal analysis of Uralic data
in particular in Permic shows the
PU proto-form was *baj-
with a variant *baj-wo
It meant "light, day" and "lightning".
It's hard to suggest something in PIE
for this *baj PU root.

It's kind of mixed up with another
root *puh- *poh "fire / to cook"
obviously cognate to PIE *puH2- "fire"

In any case, päjvä has nothing to do
with Phoibê.
