Tully[edit]

Hi Smitty1337 - d'you really, really need a citation? I only ask - or implore, to be honest - because so very few modern sources mention the variant. It's certainly historical, and may be encountered in various sources, beginning with St Thomas Aquinas (or, rather more likely, one of his translators). "Tully = Cicero" is also used as a classic semantic or logical conundrum (in which I don't claim to be interested). Anyway, for your delectation I present the google-scholar results for a search using 'Tully Marcus Tullius Cicero' - [1]. Best, Haploidavey (talk) 15:19, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

The Cardiffchestnut just provided a citation. Haploidavey (talk) 17:12, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
I didn't intend it as contesting the validity of the claim. I'm a bit amateurish in my history studies, but in the several sources I've read about (and by) Cicero I've never come across "Tully", though it seems appropriate to turn the gens Tulli into Tully. I simply wished to see a reference for that. Which there is one now. Smitty1337 (talk) 00:27, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
