Citation needed?[edit]

Nephele goddess of clouds. Why citation needed? Simply put: nephele and nubes seems etymologically related, such as both derived from proto-Indoeuropean nebhe+, for nephele a diminutive ending +le added so that nephele < *nebhelah some such (cf. nebula) and, nubes simply from n∅bhe+s or some such.

Maybe I misunderstood: the nebularity not under discussion, but rather the goddessity? I changed accordingly, and dared to remove the citation-needed-mark. Said: Rursus () 11:34, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
