1. PCelt. *agos- 'cow' < PIE. *h₂eǵHo- 'cow' (RM). 2. Arm. ezn 'bullock; ox' < PIE. *(H)h₁eģh-ih₂-m 3. Indo-Iranian cognates. Mallory-Adams note: "This word is usually reconstructed as *haeģh- but such a reconstruction makes it impossible to include Arm ezn 'cow'. The Indo-Iranian forms are ambiguous as to whether the initial vowel was *h₁e- or *hae-; only the Celtic seems to require *hae-. However, there is some precedent for an initial *e- appearing as a- in Celtic, cf. OIr aig 'ice' from *yegi-. As the word is attested at the margins of the IE world this strongly suggests PIE status." (Quoted by AB).
