The god's name in English is Neptune, rather than Neptunus. Is the Roman name for the god being kept because of the "no anglicisation of names" policy?

Neptune is accepted as a correct answer now. Jan 2, 2020. (and if there was ever a day sacred to Janus, this is one of them.)

Or could it be the planet Neptune?
(it was difficult for Ancient Romans, but possible for us)

That's weird to keep Neptunus in my opinion, unnatural in English (unline a person's name).
The only way it could make sense, it's if the dog's name is Neptunus (I don't think it was a name for non-god humans?)

possibly to allow the students themselves to discover what form 'Neptunus' takes in the Vocative?

Uh-oh. It's Minerva vs. Neptune all over again...

I wonder which side the drunk parrots will join.

If I remember correctly its the side that can provide the best olives (ie Minerva)

Perfect for the drunk parrots' dirty martinis.

Neptunus, looks like you forgot your Spanish lesson. You know what happens now!

Estne bubo quoque cum psittaco ebrio?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/gsp732649

bubo astronomiam studet. telescopium habet. in deos romanos non credit.

Sed Neptunus Deus se ante Bubo revelat!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PraefectaCassia

Bubo cum psittaci vinum bibit

Is the owl duo, or a drunk parrot that thinks he's an owl?
