Vetting Status: high
[Meaning something] different, and not similar.[1] Or [so called] on account of flowing within.[2]

The closest parallel to this entry (containing both of the etymologies offered here) is in an anonymous Etymologicum published in Anecdota Graeca (Cramer) 2.436.20.
[1] An absurd etymology based on the similarity between the words 'intestine' (ἔντερον ) and 'different' (ἕτερον ). The same etymology is also offered in entries on ἔγκατα ('innards') in Etymologicum Magnum 310.9 and Etymologicum Gudianum 394.19.
[2] Another etymology, as if ἔντερον were a combination of words for 'within' (ἐντός ) and 'flow' (ῥεῖν ). Also found in Etymologicum Magnum 344.32. Cf. the similar etymology in Etymologicum Gudianum 480.13, where the word is derived from 'fitting' (ἀρηρέναι ) within.
