Is ypologistís (Greek for computer) derived from, or related to,
apologeisthai "to speak in one's defense," from apologos "an account, story," (Etomonline)
I have now been informed by Janus Bahs Jacquet that the Ancient Greek word was hypologistēs. A bit of searching gave me the meaning of logistes:
auditor or accountant who scrutinizes the accounts of other officials who have authority over public funds
But what was the hypologistes? An underling of the logistes, a clerk?
And does it derive from logike and ultimately from logos? Etomonline
