Roots

Greek tiara is "probably of oriental origin" to Webster's. The AHD feels that this crown term is from a Greek word for turban, but no Indo-European “root” is offered.

[A]DTaRaH is a crown (Songs3:11).  [A]DTaR is to surround.

Demonstrating how gutturals and dentals are interchangeable, Kahf-Tahf-Resh, KeTeR also means 1) to surround, and 2) a crown  -- Esther 2:17 (see CZAR).

The same Ayin-Tet sub-root gives us [A]DTaF, to wrap oneself. With the guttural Ayin, GH-DT, you can now feel that wrap we call a COAT.


Branches

TOAR is a circlet;  DOOR is the rim of a wheel – see   TIRE. Because Ayin-Tet-Resh-Hey can also be read rendered as GHaDTaRaH, the KeTeR (crown) is closely related. See TIER for straight TR antonyms. Catharine, Kathy, Kate, Catarina and Kathleen are thought to come from Greek katharos (pure), but GHaDTaRaH is a regally feminine Hebrew name. See KaSHeR (ritually fit, pure) at CATHARTIC.

Kahf-Thaf, K-TH. may also infer “pure, as Hebrew as KeTH(eM) is pure gold and  KaTH(eeYT) is pure oil.
