Spelling[edit]

Larissa or Larisa? You can use both as long as you think about cheese while saying it or writing it... its all in the old deus ex machina tyrokafteri with the feta spell...

I think maybe the city can be considered the primary meaning, so it doesn't need to be a disambiguation.

The mythological figure, the moon and the city may as well be spelled the same way since they all derive from the same source ( 12:28, 16 Jan 2004 (UTC)

I have implemented this scheme using the spelling Larissa. ( 10:35, 17 Jan 2004 (UTC)

It is true that they should all be spelled the same way. Also the correct spelling would probably be Larissa. In Greek the sound is a clear s. Many speakers of languages of latin descent may mistake a sole -s followed by a noun for a z like sound (as in busy,cosine,disease etc). A double -s is more clear.my name is larissa jerry


I confirm the above statement from "Jerry". Jimzoun 00:01, 16 March 2006 (UTC) ALSO*** LARISSA PHAN IS FABULOUS AND AWESOME!!!! FROM SEATTLE WASHINGTON!! JULY 27,2009 AT 1:00 AM***


It is Yenishehir in Turkish which means new city.


A spelling with a double S is given in both Latin and Greek in Smith, William (1849) Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology. p.722:

LARISSA (Λάρισσα), a daughter of Pelasgus, from whom the arx of Argos and two Thessalian towns are believed to have derived their name. (Paus. ii. 24. § 1 ; Strab. xiv. p. 621, who calls her a daughter of Piasus, a Pelasgian prince.) [L.S.]

24 October 2006 Does anyone know which "Larissa" is oldest in origin, the Greek or Russian? Larissa has ties to both, however, I have a hard time believing that there were two identically named city/city-states from ancient times so far geographically apart. Also, the Russian background seems to be a bit lacking. If anyone has any input I would greatly appreciate it. Politis 19:55, 31 October 2007 (UTC) -AN-

No pictures of the city[edit]

I am not surprised, it is covered in concrete, including the remaining town squares.

Good point, do you want to go tell them to change the city for Wiki? Reaper7 (talk) 22:45, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

On the subject of photos of the city, the current ones are nice and all, but Larissa being covered in snow is kind of un-characteristic for the city (it rarely snows in Larissa nowadays), maybe they should be replaced, I might do it myself if I find the time 212.251.111.152 (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 20:31, 29 December 2008 (UTC).

Interesting, 2 years later, not one photo of the city, but of course, a picture of the inside of a nice synagogue..If only we had as many Greek editors as jewish for Greek cities 78.145.25.196 (talk) 13:03, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
