    Is this Neanderthal script? If so, the Latin alphabet seems quite clearly to be its descendant!

    No. It's Cro-Magnon phonemic script, which Postule, and other scholars of the time, always used for Neanderthal. Sorry, I should have put in between slashes to make this clear. The Cro-Magnons did not, of course use slashes (//); they used snardoovs (₪). Slashes were not invented until long after the Cro-Magnons had ceased publishing.

    Hello, Birdeen's call:

    I am NOT a good reader, so I have probably MISinterpreted your post.

    Google (including its "books" section) has many references to something that is attributed to Titus Livius (Livy):

    Potiusque sero quam nunquam

    Thanks, I didn't know about it! All I did was try to translate the quotation to Latin and google it. But I tried "tarde" instead of "sero" and "melius" instead of "potius".
