@JohnC5, Barytonesis What of Quintilian saying "et 'columnam' exempta N littera legimus" (1.7.29)? -GuitarDudeness (talk) 13:15, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

@GuitarDudeness: It seems to be a larger discussion about strange spelling traditions in Latin (e.g. using C. for Gaius). This is a question about why the letter n is sometimes omitted from columnam or consules. I didn't read enough to determine whether the question is answered or not. —JohnC5 22:26, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
