This appears to mean "father". Does the meaning differ from that of πᾰτήρ (which has the etymological meaning of "protector")? If so, how? This seems to obviously derive from verb φῠ́ω, which primarily means "generate", "produce". Can φύτωρ, then, also mean "progenitor", "forefather", or even "patriarch"? How broad is the semantic field of φύτωρ? I ask this, because from an etymological perspective, φύτωρ seems to be a direct synonym of γενέτωρ/γενέτης. Finally, can φύτορ be considered to be an "alternate form" of φύτωρ (I saw φύτορ online while searching for info about this)?
