μπουλούκι (boulouki) from the same song, (Zeimbekiko for Nikkos).
Boulouko is the Cypriot word for stuffed animal--according to google translate,  bölük  means company in Turkish..the etymology makes more sense for the Greek word than the Cypriot except that one does use a stuffed animal to keep one company. In the meantime, SCRUM from the definition of boulouki is new to me...

Furthermore, from looking up the Turkish boluk, I learned that Maniple (Latin: manipulus) was a tactical unit of the Roman legion adopted from the Samnites during the Samnite Wars (343–290 BC)!!! Andrea, my only known reader, are you smiling?
