Turner, CDB, AED, Arm. c'iṙ 'donkey': "No acceptable etymology… a word of unknown origin" says Martirosyan, who nonetheless suggests a connection with Ir. cíar 'dark brown' < *ḱh₁ei-ro- (the evidence for *h₁ is based only on this Irish form); PSl. *xoiro- 'grey' < PIE *ḱHoiro-: RuCS sěrъ, Ru. séryj, Ukr. síryj, OCz. šerý, etc.; OIc. hárr, OE. hār 'grey' < *ḱh₁oi-ro-; OPr. sasins 'hare'; Skt. śáśa- 'hare' < *ḱh₁-es-; Lat. cānus 'white, hoary, grey; old, aged' < *kasnos, cascus 'old'.
