Roots

Greekostreon is an oyster. the alleged Indo-European “root” is ost, bone – from   עצם [E]TSeM, bone – see “OSTREOMA.”  But other shellfish are not named for bone, and the pearl-bearing OYSTER  is more unique than its shell.  A better etymon should be   אוצר OWTSAR, a storehouse or treasury (Deuteronomy 21:12).     אצר OTSaR is to STORE store or hoard. אצור   ATSOOR means closed up.  An OYSTER is nature’s TREASURE case, a scrambled Aleph-Tsadi-Resh. אוצרה    על אוצרות   “OWTSRaH [A]hL OWTSaROAT” in Nehemia 13:13 is translated, “I made treasurers over the treasuries.”
