Carp and Hot Water

March 26, 2010 3 comments

More “ok-” “ca-” possibilities. Since there are very many Latin words beginning with “ca-” there is a lot of scope for proposing plausible translations for any VMs word beginning “ok-“. More confidence would be afforded by accumulating a large number of plausible or convincing matches.

Hot water coming out of the pipe(s) on f77r? The left pipe may be spewing cold water (blue). (Also note caldarium = hot bath, cantharus = water pipe)

Conjecture: “okoe” = “calda”

The two carp on f70v2. (But this could equally well be a star name.)

Conjecture: “okoeae” = “carpa”
