I happened upon this stone in Nîmes:
This inscription (CIL XII: 3203) was one of several in the museum with very clearly marked apices. I wonder if it would be worth using it instead of the current photograph, on which the apices show up a little less distinctly? Q·L·1968 ☿ 03:16, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
- They use a tall I for í. Is that normal? Did i continue to be written double after that convention was dropped for other vowels?
- I see we were missing it in the existing illustration as well, with what we transcribed as ⟨j⟩. Added a note, though I don't know how general it was. — kwami (talk) 11:07, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
Not in Unicode?
I did not find the word "Apex" in Unicode character names. Is it encoded in Unicode at all, possibly under another name? Has Unicode published anything about the acute-resemblance? -DePiep (talk) 18:42, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Why did vowel length marking stop?
Why is it that although double consonants are always marked, marking long vowels has fallen out of use? Did vowels eventually lose their length? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:26, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
More references needed.
This article makes a lot of claims that amount to "modern experts are stupid and don't know what they're doing". That sort of claim requires a large number of good references. (Actually, even with a large number of good references, I think some of these claims would need to be toned down; but first, references.) —RuakhTALK 16:06, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
