The Ancient Macedonian word γάρκαν
Word γάρκαν
ɟ a r k a n
IPA ɟarka
Meaning rod, wand
See also Attic Greek: χάραξ ‘pointed stake, pole, pale, rod’
Greek: γάρρα ‘stick’
Pre-Greek: γάρσανα ‘dry sticks’



Reminds of γάρρα 'twig, rod, staff' but such a comparison is problematic due to phonological reasons -ρκα vs. -ρρα. Also Cretan (PG) γάρσανα.
