Roots

There is no Indo-European “root” for URN.  The Latin urna (urn) is a funereal or other container. It is said to come from Latin urere, to burn, because it may have been made of burnt clay.  All ceramic vessels are from burnt clay.

When Joseph dies, his remains are placed in an   ארון   AROAN (coffin) --  Genesis 40:26. The broken tablets of law are also placed in an ארון AROAN (box, container for precious things). What type of wood wasthis, or  the ארון AROAN (casket) of Joseph (Genesis 40:26) ?  Uncertain, but ארן OaReN is a cedar, pine or fir (Isaiah 44:14).  Aleph-Resh-Noon figures in other words at NIB and ELM.


Branches

If   there is a modern language that may shed light on the Roman urna, it  is Italian.  In Italian and Spanish an  urna is also a ballot box.  French armoire  (closet) is more likely a S-N  of  ארון   AROAN (chest, elaborate container --  Exodus 25:25) than a cognate of “armament” (AHD).
