Semantic origin? "Troglo-" usually denotes one who lives underground, such as a troglodyte (lives deep in caves and does not emerge), troglophile (ventures into caves occasionally), and trogloxene (lives in caves but hunts elsewhere). The only thing I can think of regarding "mithra" is the fabled strong silver of the Dwarves of Middle Earth, from which they made their wonderous
"mithril" chain mail. Any connection?

Signs point to yes.
