Shouldn't this be parhelion (Latin parelion)? Also, definitions should not begin with "When" (unless they are to do with time). SemperBlotto 08:14, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Certainly makes more sense, though I'm not sure how to explain the first quote. Sorry about the poor definition, it was late, and I had nothing but the two quotes, and another definition online (which I can no longer find) that said parelius was latin for "like the sun"
Actually, a google search this morning for parelius and sun produces (amongst others) this and this and this, and a better definition: "a mock sun"--T. Mazzei 14:05, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
Not that I'm an expert, but at Wikipedia it claims "Some Greek nouns may be declined as normal, Latin nouns. For example, theātron can appear as theātrum." Could this be the case for parelion / parelius?--T. Mazzei 05:06, 21 November 2011 (UTC)


Does anyone dispute that T. Mazzei's citations (linked-to above) verify this term? - -sche (discuss) 20:41, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

In the interest of resolving old discussions and accepting links to citations without making someone spend the time to put them in the entry, I'm striking this. PS, here's a citation of the plural: [1]. - -sche (discuss) 03:51, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
