However, the Mishnah (Pesachim 10:8) commentary by Philip Blackman (Judaica 
Press, 1963) and Marcus Jastrow's Dictionary (page 104; Judaica Press, 1996) 
point in another direction.  They both derive AFIKOMAN (originally, EPIKOMIN) 
from the Greek EPIKWMON (EPI + KWMOS), "aftermeal entertainment," and 
EPIKWMOI, "things belonging to the aftermeal."
