What does αποικία mean? Colony or Homeaway? How can it be etymologically explained? I have heard it from a lecturer that it's Homeaway but in dictionaries meaning is always colony, plantation or settlement.

Hello

"αποικία" in Greek means "colony".

I am not aware of the word "homeaway".

Etymology :  από + οικία

"από" has the meaning of "far away".

"οικία" means "home".
