Re: VMs: RE: Re: michiton oladabas explained

Hi everyone,

Looking at my CopyFlo just now, I found some notes I made while talking with Sergio Torresella on this page, which I omitted to copy to the list (sorry).

When Sergio looked at the VMS at the Beinecke, he felt reasonably sure that the first few words were:

pulcher nomen pu[e]rem

anchiton aladabas ...

His opinion was that whoever wrote it had an "inability to write Latin", and so was instead parroting Latin-like phrases.

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
