The aim of this minor contribution to Afro-Asiatic (Semito-Hamitic) etymology is to appraise in the light of recent results of the named field of research the achievements of F. von Calice, a pioneer of Egyptian etymology, whose magnum opus appeared exactly 70 years ago. The methods applied therein are those of comparative Afro-Asiatic linguistics: an attempt is made at evaluating each selected etymology according to the criteria of semantics and consonantal correspondences. As a result, the reader can hopefully measure the progress of this minor field in the past 70 years.
