English - Etymology

1865, from French _philatélie_, coined by French stamp collector Georges Herpin (in _Le Collectionneur de Timbres-poste,_ Nov. 15, 1864) from Ancient Greek _φιλο-_ (philo-, “love of”) + _ἀτέλεια_ (atéleia), the closest word he could find in Ancient Greek to the concept of "postage stamp", from _ἀ-_ (a-, “without”) + _τέλος_ (télos, “tax”). This word serves as a reminder of the original function of postage stamps, now often forgotten: the cost of letter-carrying formerly was paid by the recipient; stamps indicated it had been pre-paid by the sender, thus the letters were "carriage-free".
