Error of ascribed origin: omne ignotum pro magnifico[edit]

Section: "omne ignotum pro magnifico | every unknown thing [is taken] for great | or "everything unknown appears magnificent" The source is Tacitus: Agricola, Book 1, 30 where the sentence ends with 'est'. The quotation is from Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes story 'The Red-Headed League' where the 'est' is missing."

Error: The phrase "omne ignotum pro magnifico" is found in Edgar Allan Poe's "Balloon-Hoax," which pre-dates the Conan Doyle story. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.183.75.163 (talk) 01:56, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
