Tables or tablets??[edit]

Nuff said. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.79.79.16 (talk) 23:18, 25 April 2011 (UTC)

Tablet no. and saturnian[edit]

The two excerpts are both from T. VI: the one attributed to T. I is from VI 22 ff. That the tablets were all written in metric similar to saturnian verse is not correct. Only table VI i. e. the last one has passages that can be seen as metrical.01:35, 3 October 2011 (UTC)Aldrasto11 (talk) 01:37, 3 October 2011 (UTC)

It was a long year.[edit]

A farmer found the tablets in a field sometime in the medieval period (1441) ...

Eh? Is 1441 the year of the discovery, or some obscure index number? If it is the date, can we omit "sometime in the medieval period"? —Tamfang (talk) 08:14, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
