Boioti. A mountain tribe of east Epirus. Is related to Albanian verb bie, derived from PIE bhoio ‘beat, struggle’.

According to G. Meyer16, the Albanian word has cognates in OHG berjan ‘beat, hit’, ONord. berja, Latin ferio ‘hit, shoot’ and Old Church Slavic borjo ‘fight’.

Hence, the meaning of the tribe name might have been “warriors”. The ancient name is inherited in a mediaeval Albanian tribe name.
