    I have always believed that the obesity epidemic that has plagued the US was due to some communicable disease and it was not as a result of overeating. Americans did not all of a sudden start over...

    One major difference between Italy and Greece. Italy has a lot fewer bugs than Greece. You can sit outside in the evening and not be eaten alive by mosquitoes or spent all your time shooing away...

    If you blindfolded me and dropped me off in the main piazza in Terranova I would be really hard pressed to tell the difference between it and any Greek village. The same καφενειο (kafenio, caffe)...

    You can find similarities in any two languages if you look hard enough, as in Cherokee and Greek, https://dnaconsultants.com/cherokees-spoke-greek-came-east-mediterranean/ :laughing:

    When will the t-rolls arrive trying to claim it that it was not really invented by the ancient Greeks, that they stole it from another culture, that the ancient Greeks were not really Greeks, that...

    A few Roman/Byzantine emperors met the same fate. It is tough being a pharaoh or an emperor. If the imperial guard does not kill or your generals do not move against you, your wife and or son kill...

    Where did you get that Slavs invaded the balkans during the Paleolitic and Mesolithic? This is the first time I have ever heard of it. The Middle Ages, yes, the Paleolithic, that's news to me.

    I certainly don't. The Celts were knocking around the Balkans for couple of hundred years.
  16. Has there been any genetic study on the Sarmatians over the centuries?

    I am mostly interested in it because according to some sources, about 300,000-500,000 were resettled in Thrace, Macedonia and Italy in the 4th century AD and the rest were slavicized and absorbed by...

    In Greek it is preferred to have the adjective before the subject but it can be be the other way around if it is used for emphasis.

    But are they white? :laughing:

    BTW doesn't Italian put adjectives after the subject so should it not have been Monteaspro like Montenegro?

    I love it, Aspromonte, a mashup of Aspro - Greek for White and Monte - Italian for mountain :).
