Comments[edit]

I may be wrong, but isn't Maussolus simply the modern Greek spelling? Not "more correct" at all? It's unheard-of in the literature, or I am mistaken. Wetman 10:05, 2 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Okay, I'll just be taking it out, then.--Wetman (talk) 08:51, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Etymology of Mausolus[edit]

Mausoleum means "of Mausolus" but what dos "Mausolus" means?Undead Herle King (talk) 08:30, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

It's a personal name. The etymology of names isn't usually mentioned unless it's important. --Thnidu (talk) 07:30, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
