1、coron- => coroun- => crown.
来自PIE*sker, 弯，转，编织，词源同cradle, corona.
- crown:  Crowns appear to have been named essentially from their circular shape. The word’s ultimate source, Greek korónē, simply meant ‘something curved’ (it came from the adjective korōnos ‘curved’, which was a relative of Latin curvus ‘curved’). Latin borrowed it as corōna ‘circular garland’, and passed it on via Old French corone and Anglo-Norman corune to English.
Latin also derived a verb from it, corōnāre, which ultimately became the English verb crown and also, of course, formed the basis of English coronation . Other English descendants of Latin corōna (which itself became an English word in the 16th century) are the two diminutives coronet  and corolla  (source of corollary), coroner  (originally an ‘officer of the crown’), and coronary.
The use of crown for certain coins (based of course on their being stamped with the figure of a crown) dates in English from the 14th century; it is also reflected in such coin names as Swedish krona and Danish and Norwegian krone.
