There is a term appearing several times in Phrygian inscriptions, that has taken the attention of many Phrygian scholars lately.

The reading order of the inscription is under debate as the sentence renders in different parts of the rock. More or less it says that someone with the title akenanogawos...

Just in this way, each word with a capital letter.And why not? Why do the French call their revolution in this way?Why they are proud of it? Was it less bloody?Was not there a mass emigration and guillotines?Just because it has changed the way of life not only of the country but also of the world, it has brought a new era for humanity.The British have staged a similar revolution a century earlier, but could not keep it,that's why the French Revolution became the symbol of the new epoch - the subject...
