   Why? no Semitic origin is known for the word. In fact, it is mentioned in Egyptian sources as one of 'invader' groups from abroad.

if there are two greek sources which call the place philist-* and palaist-*
then they may represent two DISTINCT semitic sources with different phonetic
structure. say, aramaic and phoenician?
