Caria=Karia[edit]

I am not sure how to properly add this, so perhaps some more senior editor can help. The Greek spelling is Karia (Caria is the Roman spelling), but either way the region is pronounced with a "k" sound. Many sources now reference the region using the Greek spelling, so it should be added (to disambiguation?). FYI, even during Roman times, Greek language dominated in Asia Minor and was used in the region, as attested by coins. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Syennesis (talkcontribs) 15:40, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

I've added "Karia" as an alternate spelling, however the most common spelling in English is "Caria". Paul August 17:33, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
