Timor mortis conturbat me.
To be 'precise, plate is lanx, lancis (from wich,for instance, "balance" (bi = 2 + lances = platplates , I. "bilancia"), Patella is the diminutive of "patera" = bowl. And this explains the bone name.
Oh, that's right: little bowl! Thanks!
Weird thing to brag about, but okay.
