It is answers.com that includes Wikipedia articles, as clearly stated in that page.--Panairjdde 14:36, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

This article claims that Jugurtha died both in 104BC (Intro) and in 106BC (War with Rome section). This seems improbable.

Name[edit]

I've removed this

"The name Jugurthen is actually a Libyan name and phrase meaning: (he) is greater than them[citation needed]."

after it had been tagged for almost a year. The contributor who had originally inserted it seems to have some kind of affinity to Berber topics and might have some form of basis for his claim. I am sure most readers would find it very interesting to read about an etymology for the name. However, unless such an etymology is sourced from a scholarly article, it smells strongly of home-style cooking. Trigaranus (talk) 05:44, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
