    Re: Nevil Maskelyne - "Credat Iudaeus Apella"
    From: Jan Kalivoda

    Hello,
    
    I am sitting in Paris for several weeks and reading silently your
    discussions in the list after a long spell of my unplanned relegation.
    
    But as a Latinist, I can add something to George's citation from Gould on
    the catastrophical landfall of the fleet near Scilly:
    
    "Credat Iudaeus Apella" was the old Roman anti-semitic proverb, with the
    sense "Only a credulous Jew takes it as granted, we sober men can forget
    it". Therefore, Gould anticipates George's position in this issue.
    
    I hope that after some days, I will send something more interesting from
    Paris.
