::And likewise '''D<big>I</big>S·MANIBVS''', whichis I suppose a little too similar. BTW, this whole entry is goign to need to be rewritten anyway: it's closer to wiktionary as it stands. --[[Usor:Iustinus|Iustinus]] 19:47, 11 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
:::Re ''Sol Deus.'' Hmm. I know it's on coins & all, but can we be sure it wasn't conceived in the sense of 'God as Sun; God in the form of Sun', or something like that, much as ''Caesar dux'' is 'Caesar the general; Caesar, now a general; Caesar, when he was general; Caesar in his capacity as general' and such? (In both examples, both nouns would of course be declined.) ''Coca-Cola'' wouldn't fit that syntactical bill. [[Usor:IacobusAmor|IacobusAmor]] 19:52, 11 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
::::''Sol Deus'', as its English equivalent "Sun-God", serves to distinguish ''Sol'' "that giant contained nuclear explosion in the daytime sky that hurts your eyes if you try to look at it," from ''Sol'' "The god thereof, whether conceived of as the sun of Hyperion, the sun of Nut, or that guy who came out of a rock and killed a bull." In other words, it's equivalent to "Sol (Deus)". But really there's no reason you can't analyze it as "Sol [et] Deus", which Is how I would analyze Coca Cola --[[Usor:Iustinus|Iustinus]] 20:07, 11 Ianuarii 2007 (UTC)
