Etymology of dense

The adj dense derives from the Latin densus (dense), which derives from the Greek adj δασύς (dasys; dense).
From the same root: density
In modern Greek.
α) δασύς: dense, thick [dasys]
β) δασύτητα: density, denseness [dasytita]
Το επίθετο dense (πυκνός) προέρχεται από το Λατινικό densus (dense), το οποίο με τη σειρά του προέκυψε από το Ελληνικό δασύς.
δασύς (dasys) –> dasus –> desus –> densus
