I hope that you will NOT START TO TELL US THAT -h2- HERE is deduced ONLY based on Latin *woth2-aje/o- > OLat. voto: , isn't it?
Because if so (and unfortunately for you it is so :)) your example is a PURE CIRCULAR ONE:
1. is -h2- so -h2-eye- because we have a Latin -o:/-a:re
and in the same time:
2. it belongs to Latin -o:,-a:re- because is -h2-eye-
So you cannot use this example.
