Gr. κηρός m. ‘wax’ (RB) : "As there is no evidence for Indo-European apiculture, we have to reckon with foreign origin for κηρός" (RB).
1. Robert Beekes (with the assistance of Lucien van Beek). "κηρός" in: Etymological Dictionary of Greek. Indo-European Etymological Dictionaries Online. Edited by Alexander Lubotsky. Brill, 2014.

June 13, 2014. < http://iedo.brillonline.nl/dictionaries/lemma.html?id=12921 >, Lat. cēra f. ‘beeswax, wax’ (MDV)Possibly borrowed from Gr. κηρός.

If the Baltic forms are cognate, the substrate word might have been *kār-" (MDV)
