n.pr.loc.
Cyrenaica (region of E Libya) – WehrCowan1979.
Of obscure etymology.
Grk Bárkē .

Is it taken from a Phoen or Libyan name (barkaẗ , barqaẗ ?), or was it called al-Barqaẗ after its burqaẗ , i.e., ‘hard ground, hard soil’ (cf. BRQ_11 s.v. →BRQ)?, or after its ‘spotted’ surface—a reinterpretation of the adj. barqāʔᵘ , f. of ʔabraqᵘ ‘blotty, spotted, stained (goat, eye), piebald (black and white)’ (BRQ_14 s.v. →BRQ)?
