Spelling[edit]

I am changing the spelling of "Repubblic" (in History section, 3rd paragraph) to "Republic". Please leave a message on my talk page if this is the wrong action for me to take (i.e. historical spelling). Kevin Hanse (talk) 14:55, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Etymology[edit]

The "elbow" etymology is already covered. "The name Ancona means "elbow" (from Greek *ankon 'elbow'), referring to the shape of its geographical position. We can find similar references to the shape of the human body in other cities with similar geo-morphological features, like Genova and Geneva (which names originate from the Proto-Indo-European *genu, meaning 'knee')." --Wetman 20:07, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

Sebastiani's occupation[edit]

There is a rather obscure detail I bumped into when editing Horace François Bastien, baron Sébastiani: it seems that Ancona was occupied by France in early 1832. This is not mentioned in the article (in fact, I see that, in general, very little is mentioned in the article), and the sources I used are very explicit about its purpose and effects, but rather vague about length and context. Does anyone have more detail on this? Dahn 22:50, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Removal category request[edit]

Remove from category:Major Cities in Italy. Ancona is not one of Italian Major cities, i.e. it in not in the list of the ten biggest cities for population. --EH101 (talk) 15:38, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Disambiguation[edit]

Should there be a DISAMBIG distinction to "ancona" as plural of "an ornate altarpiece"? see http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ancona . This was why *I came to this page. Art4med (talk) 20:29, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
