Wonder why it's called "Million"

That would place it somewhat earlier than IV Century AD !!!

Million in Latin language means 1.000 (not 1.000.000)

(In Italian also mille means one thousand, I think).

It must be distance unit (different than English mile).

Oya, Congratsulations for 2000 visitors.

I wish for 20.000 soon!

Oya said...

Dion thanks, but I am almost on 6.000 visitors. Where did you get the number 2.000?

Dion.M. said...

Sorry Oya! It was profile views... (Stats from the previous page.)

I wish for 60.000 visitor then.

"Million" is very probably a misspelling (due to the influence of the english word "million") of the medieval greek word "μίλιον" ("(roman) mile").

IV Century A.D. is a looooong time ago. I'm glad that there are people all over the world who make every attempt to preserve cultural history.

The sign certainly speaks for itself. Are there other signs in Turkish or other languages?

BuJ said...

Wow.. that sign definitely speaks out.

Interesting where you find these things.
