Not completely bogus; see [1] (mention only). Still, this is surely the plural of ascius, not ascian. -- Visviva 09:13, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
This search turns up some fascinating stuff, but no convincing examples of use; as far as I can see, the word appears uniformly in capitals, italics, or as a dictionary headword. Even this exception is not much better. Ascius as an English word fares even worse. Clearly a lot of people have thought that this was a real word, but evidence is lacking. -- Visviva 09:29, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
MW3 gives it as an alternative plural to "ascian". It does seem implausible since the singular is not "ascius" and "ascius" is a Latin adjective, not a noun. Maybe it is more commonly used among the askians in Singapore et al. DCDuring TALK 13:19, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
