Roman or Egyptian
« on: March 09, 2009, 06:55:20 PM »
So, with all the Egyptian references going on, howcomes the Others speak Latin?  Of course, the Romans did have connections in Egypt, but that would have been after Atlantis.

Is it that various groups have visited the island and been assimilated?

I was thinking the same thing. Atlantis was more ancient Greece, which was way before Latin like you said.

The very nature of the island would suggest that you are right and various groups throughout history have come to the island.

As for the Latin, maybe it's just the language that held up over time, kinda like how it did in the Catholic Church until the 1960's.
