Latin[edit]

Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this Latin entry be cleaned up, giving the reason: “Entry is Latin; Quote is English - doesn't fit. (WT:Quotations#How to choose a quotation: "from works written in the language of the word in question").

Also Logeion given as Reference isn't a reference at all - Logeion only includes different dictionaries (e.g. L&S, DMLBS)”.

Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) or the talk page for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
