: : : : can someone translate this for me "Mors et inferus sequebatur eum etnomen illi"
: : : This is not Greek.
: : This is Latin. I think the first few words are "death and fire....lead to (something referring to a name, I think)
: : This phrase is about something bad, I think.
: I think it's Latin for "Death and Hell will follow him and his name," with a few typos. My Latin is very, very rusty, but if I'm right, it should be "Mors et infernus sequebantur eum et nomen illi." Note the missing Ns.
Hey, Judith, that is really cool, that you are so good at Latin! So I see that I was not far off with my guess. If you think you are rusty, I was going by my Latin class from 7th grade in jr. high school (age 12)..that's 35 years ago. Wow! I think you are right about the missing N's, now that I look at it. Have a great day!
