This article is funny. "Tuisco" is clearly a rendering of the older "Germanic" word for German ... compare Lingua Teudisca of the Oath of Strassburg 8 centuries after Tacitus. Tuisco is just one of thousands examples from around the world of an invented Eponym, compare Romulus, Scota, Francus, Kamber, Locrinus, Albanactus, Brutus, or even the Mannus mentioned in the article.

You are welcome to add a source stating this to the article. :bloodofox: (talk) 10:43, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I haven't seen anything like that in the literature since the pre-Grimm era. Maybe the Deacon was reading the Reverend... :) —Aryaman (talk) 00:58, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Good articles nomination[edit]

Can anyone think of anything else that needs to be added to this article off hand? If not, I think it's ready for a Good Article nomination. :bloodofox: (talk) 19:57, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Let's put it up for Peer Review on WP:AGS and go from there. —Aryaman (talk) 20:01, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
P.S.: I've pretty much exhausted my present resources on this, and I don't think anyone is going to find much more worth adding. I'm moving it up to B-Class. —Aryaman (talk) 22:36, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
Great job, I think the article is quite excellent - I think it says basically all there is to say. I would be surprised to find if there were any depictions out there of Tuisto. :bloodofox: (talk) 22:47, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks are also due to you for putting it up for collaboration. I would have ignored it otherwise, despite the fact that it fit in nicely with my current private studies. I put a note on the WikiProject Mythology page asking for a reassessment. Now we just need some really good copy-editors to show up...—Aryaman (talk) 01:05, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
I reassessed from start to B after you found an image. Good job! Goldenrowley (talk) 03:33, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

some misspelling of Tiwaz by Roman authors,no doubt. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Edelward (talkcontribs) 10:56, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Tuiscon / Tuyscon / Tuisto in Annius' Pseudo-Berossus[edit]

This can easily be verified. I would do it now but am on a mobile phone and will add it when I return home, if in the meantime no one else finds one for it. Cheers, Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 16:27, 27 May 2011 (UTC)


It can be only equated to Brahman and not Tvastar. Brahman is the great God and most supreme and divine being. --Rawal of Jaisalmer (talk) 16:14, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
