I removed this:

  • ([[Lingua Graeca antiqua|Graece]] Νίκη της Σαμοθράκης / ''Níkê tês Samothrákês'')

(a) because, as it stands, it's inaccurate -- this is modern Greek, not ancient -- and (b) because, although it could easily be rewritten in ancient Greek, I suspect no ancient Greek name for the statue is known. So it would then be an invented name!

Other wikis are highly unreliable on ancient Greek: if they have it at all, it has often been added by modern Greek editors who don't know how to write it correctly. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:13, 12 Aprilis 2009 (UTC)

Thank you it is a very important remark. I know only a very little of Ancient Greek and therefore I take all I find for true. Ciao--Massimo Macconi 09:33, 12 Aprilis 2009 (UTC)
