Chame grece infimum depressum terrenum a quo infrascripta.


Came AC e | Chame B f


Chame is Greek for Latin infimum {"very low"}, depressum {"sunk down"}, terrenum {"on the ground"}, and the entries that follow immediately contain this element.


Greek χαμαί /khamaí/ is an adverb meaning "on the ground" = Latin humi; Simon’s form shows the later Greek sound change αι > ε {/ai/ > /e/} resulting in /khamé/.
