As far as I know nordics actually kept their language and were not cucked into speaking Latin while your fellow mediterranean subhumans all adopted it.
Germanics speak Germanic languages, Iberian/French shitskins speak Romance. This is further proof of the weakness of mediterranean lineage.

One of my favourites is pic related

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludovisi_Gaul
>The Ludovisi Gaul Killing Himself and His Wife (sometimes called "The Galatian Suicide") is a Roman marble group depicting a man in the act of plunging a sword into his breast, looking backwards defiantly while he supports the dying figure of a woman with his left arm. It is a Roman copy of the early 2nd century AD, of a Hellenistic original, ca 230-20 BC, one of the bronze groups commissioned from Greek sculptors by Attalus I after his recent victories over the Gauls of Galatia. Other Roman marble copies from the same project are the equally famous Dying Gaul, and the less well-known Kneeling Gaul.

Found this here:
http://www.livius.org/ba-bd/baalbek/baalbek_suweydie.html

The mosaic shown on this page, was discovered in the Roman villa of Suweydie, not far from Baalbek. It dates back to the third century CE and is now on display in Lebanon's National Museum in Beyrut.

It represents the Seven Sages, together with Socrates, and Calliope, the Muse of epic poetry. The combination is not unusual, and neither is the selection of the seven, with their apopthegms:

Thales of Miletus ("a guarantor ruins himself"),
Pittacus of Mytilene ("know your opportunity"),
Solon of Athens ("nothing in exess"),
Bias of Priene ("most people are bad")

were more or less canonical, while the remaining three were on a list of seven sages by Demetrius of Phaleron, a well-known author:

Cleobulus of Lindos ("moderation is best"),
Chilon of Sparta ("know thyself"), and
Periander of Corinth ("practice makes perfect").

It seems that it doesn't have the original quotes on it.

True slavs use latin alphabet
>>
>>38168503
Yes, there are quite a few differences. Τhe proper Latin transliterations are:
"Meletē pan" and "Meletē ergon auxi" (actually, in the mosaic it should have been ΑΥΞΕΙ (auxei), but I guess it is from dialect or something)

In modern it is spelled in IPA as: /meleti pan/ and /meleti erɣon afksi/
>>
>>38168724
I checked the wikipage for greek alphabet, and from a quick glance most stuff is the same though (B = v, Γ = g Δ/д = d, Λ/л = l etc.), that H is annoying though since it's not the same as in latin alphabet or slavic alphabet (н = n in slavic alphabet)

yeah :DD
Actually the story goes like this:

Η was firstly used to denote a rough breathing sound [h] (like in Latin).
It was
ΗΑΛΜΑ instead of ΑΛΜΑ
ΚΗΑΡΑ instead of ΧΑΡΑ
etc.

At the endings of the 5th century BC, this letter changed to represent a long open E [ɛː], which was symbolized before with Ε too (there was no distinction between [ɛː] and [e] in writting).
This changed how the writing looked. For example ΗΕΛΛΕΝΕΣ ---> ΕΛΛΗΝΕΣ.

To denote now the rough breathing sound, they began to use pic related. This symbol gave rise to the spiritus asper (δασεία): ῾. For example, ἙΛΛΗΝΕΣ.

At 1st century AD, [ɛː] changed (phonologically) to an [i], and thus Η from then up until today has the same value as Ι.

-----------


About the Slavs, I don't know the exact story, but I think that this happened:

They took Ν and made it H,
and they took H and made it И.

Weird stuff. Also И = i, latin H in slavic alphabet is x
>>
>>38170540
>Also И = i
Yes, this is because Η turned out to sound as an I.
From calligraphy, Η became И.

>latin H in slavic alphabet is x
Well, it is not really an "h". Χ is a Voiceless Velar Fricative, while "h" is a Voiceless glottal fricative.

Χ has the same value in Greek as Cyrillic does.
In Classical Greek, it was an aspirated velar stop /kʰ/.
Then, in Koine Greek (300BC - 300AD) it became, a Voiceless Velar Fricative, and stays like that up until this day.
You can see that it was /kʰ/ in ancient in this post (>>38169847) where ΧΑΡΑ is written as ΚΗΑΡΑ.

But the way, in Greek, Χ can also can also represent a Voiceless Palatal Fricative, if it is followed by ab [e] or an [i].

Ah! And X is a /ks/ in Latin because:

>Xi
>In ancient times, some local forms of the Greek alphabet used the chi instead of xi to represent the /ks/ sound. This was borrowed into the early Latin language, which led to the use of the letter X for the same sound in Latin, and many modern languages that use the Latin alphabet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_man_of_the_Hohlenstein_Stadel
>A lion-headed figure, first called the lion man (German: Löwenmensch, literally "lion human"), then the lion lady (German: Löwenfrau), is an ivory sculpture that is both the oldest known zoomorphic (animal-shaped) sculpture in the world, and the oldest known uncontested example of figurative art yet discovered. The sculpture has also been interpreted as anthropomorphic, giving human characteristics to an animal, although it may have represented a deity. The figurine was determined to be about 40,000 years old[1] by carbon dating material from the same layer in which the sculpture was found. It is associated with the archaeological Aurignacian culture.[2] The sculpture is 29.6 cm (11.7 inches) in height, 5.6 cm wide, and 5.9 cm thick. It was carved out of mammoth ivory using a flint stone knife. There are seven parallel, transverse, carved gouges on the left arm. It is now in the museum in Ulm, Germany.

>The mosaic is made of about one and a half million tiny colored tiles called tesserae, arranged in gradual curves called opus vermiculatum, (also known as "worm work," because they seem to replicate the slow motion of a crawling worm). The mosaic is an unusually detailed work for a private residence and was likely commissioned by a wealthy person or family.

Don't forget:
>Biggest hurdle you have when looking for how ancient "Northern" peoples (Celts, Germanics, Slavs...) lived, how their society was etc.. is that they weren't lucky enough to live next to some proto-kikes from which they could copy an alphabet. So all ancient sources are from outsiders and thus mostly heavily biased
