Untitled[edit]

I noticed a spelling mistake in the article entitled "Niccolò Da Conti". Should be "occurred" not "occured". This is in the summary section at the beginning of the article. However, there is no Edit button here. How do I correct the mistake?

For the opening section, which has no [Edit] link to it, click on the "Edit this page" at the top of the page. RickK 06:27, Jun 6, 2005 (UTC)

So did he die a muslim or christian?

Dating problems[edit]

Quoth the article:

Around 1440 Da Conti sailed back to India ... from where he travelled overland via Mt. Sinai to Cairo ... Niccolò Da Conti returned to Venice in 1444...

But also:

Poggio's recording of Niccolò's account, made in 1439...

How can these dates be reconciled? --Jfruh 15:48, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Date Questions Indeed?[edit]

I too have a problem with some of the dates and source materials in this interesting article. Having just read 1421 by Gavin Menzies I wanted to know more about Da Conti - I think more expertise is required here but it's a good start just the dates seem a bit screwy just when did Poggio and Da Conti sit down and was it in Venice, etc? --Robdav69 22:00 24 July 2006 (GMT)

Niccolò de' Conti or Niccolò Conti?[edit]

Niccolò da Conti— the da/dei is never capitalised— signifies "Niccolò from Conti", as Leonardo da Vinci was from Vinci. The name Niccolò de' Conti signifies "Niccolò of the Conti family", or "Niccolò of the lineage of the [unspecified] counts". The question remains whether he is simply Niccolò Conti. --Wetman (talk) 22:08, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

Image:EugeneIV.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
