11115Re: [gothic-l] Epithets used for Theodosius, for Constantinople, etc.
- Dec 4, 2013Hello Oscar,Yes, I knew he was a Tervingi Goth but in my novel I, of course, must have him speaking English for most readers to understand the plot and actions.I remember reading of some epiteth that the Goths used for Theodosius (something like Rome-King maybe) but I just cannot find it in my reference books on the Goths.I have read: Theodosius, Stilicho, History of the Goths, Barbarians Within the Gates of Rome, Goths and Romans 332-489, and Rome's Gothic Wars. Somewhere in there was this written, but I just cannot find it.I was hoping someone would remember.Thanks for your reply.

I am writing a book (novel) about Alaric and I want to try to remain as historically accurate, not just in events, but in speech also.I will not have Alaric speaking Gothic, of course, but if I can use some of he phrases used by the Goths to add authenticity to my story, I think it would add much to the book.Thanks in advance.Tom
