I just saw your older posting Medea and thought of this version of the play Melina Mercouri playing Medea . Its her doing a stage version of the play while meeting a real woman who murdered her kids in Athens at the same time. You tube has two clips ... Liam ~ Isaw the film ... its more than gripping...

P.S. re there are forms of this word dating back to Shakespeare's time
as in the opening in Macbeth


Macbeth
Mac IV.i.1 Thunder. Enter the three Witches



FIRST WITCH

Mac IV.i.1 Thrice the brinded cat hath mewed.

SECOND WITCH

Mac IV.i.2 Thrice, and once the hedge-pig whined.
hedge-pig (n.) hedgehog


THIRD WITCH

Mac IV.i.3 Harpier cries! 'Tis time, 'tis time!.

FIRST WITCH

Mac IV.i.4 Round about the cauldron go;
Mac IV.i.5 In the poisoned entrails throw:
Mac IV.i.6 Toad that under cold stone
Mac IV.i.7 Days and nights has thirty-one.
Mac IV.i.8 Sweltered venom, sleeping got,
sweltered (adj.) oozing, dripping [in the manner of sweat]

Mac IV.i.9 Boil thou first i'the charmed pot.
