Haec urbs, Pinta aut Pintia est? --Daniel bg 15:10, 20 Aprilis 2007 (UTC)

Pintia is a Vacceo-Roman archaeological site on the Duero river, but far away from modern day Valladolid. Valladolid comes from vallis tolitum a celto-roman name meaning valley of torrents or waters [1] and in the first written documents (relating to the foundation of the city in the XI century) it already appears as Valladolid. I think the page should be moved--Xaverius 15:28, 20 Aprilis 2007 (UTC)
And also check es:Historia de Valladolid--Xaverius 15:29, 20 Aprilis 2007 (UTC)
I couldn't see that vallis tolitum is much used, but I found the alternative name Valdoletum in Graesse and moved the page there. Is that OK, do you think? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:37, 14 Maii 2007 (UTC)
Perfect! I was just refering to the etymology. I had seen also Vallisoletum, but that is probably later than Valdoletum--Xaverius 13:38, 14 Maii 2007 (UTC)

Where does Vallisoletum fit in? --Iustinus 00:10, 31 Augusti 2007 (UTC)

From what Xaverius says above it must be a medieval/modern variant, perhaps equal to Valdoletum. I have added it to the first sentence. OK? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:36, 31 Augusti 2007 (UTC)
Oops. Sorry I missed that. --Iustinus 00:37, 2 Septembris 2007 (UTC)
