If there is a page at Vicicitatio, we need a link to it, please. Then we can help. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:42, 13 Novembris 2008 (UTC)
OK, I've found it now. The link is [1]. But I can't get any further. No doubt someone understands this business, it's too complicated for me! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:49, 13 Novembris 2008 (UTC)
It was just the wrong formula: The page is at Vicifons, not at Vicicitatio, therefore we need to use the formula {{Vicifons}}. --Amphitrite 15:43, 13 Novembris 2008 (UTC)

Proposed move[fontem recensere]

The praenomen Lucius is accepted by Der kleine Pauly, on what grounds I don't know. Since he is commonly known as Livius Andronicus, and no one else has this name, I don't see any strong reason for the move. We can have a redirect, of course. Would that be OK?

According to the introduction in the Loeb series, he "came into the possession of one Lucius Livius" (otherwise unknown, but "probably the father of Livius Salinator"). According to custom, when he became a freedman, he received his former owner's name but kept his original cognomen, so his full name was Lucius Livius Andronicus, and that should therefore (lest uninformed readers think Livius was his praenomen and Andronicus his nomen) be our lemma.

Thanks for checking. Yes, good point. I've moved it. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:52, 13 Novembris 2008 (UTC)
