saluēte! Which vowels in the Lapis Satricānus inscription in Archaic Latin are long? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapis_Satricanus http://la.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapis_Satricanus I suppose iei stetērai popliōsiō valesiōsiō suodālēs mamārtei Did I miss something? I've read that in the archaic dative case ending -iōi the "ō" was long, but in "-iōsiō"? In "mārs," "mārtis," "mārtī" the "ā" is long, but if you put prefix before this word - "mamārtei" - the "ā" in the root remains long, or shortens?
