"Calceos tuos celamus."

Translation:We hide your shoes.

November 5, 2019



In Italian the word for a shoemaker is calzolaio. The word for football (soccer) is calcio. I would guess they are cognate with calceos. Anyway, even if I'm wrong, that is how I will remember it.


Calceōs Accusative Plural • Calceus / Calceī Shoe/s • Calx ( heel of the foot, chalk, limestone, finish line ) + -eus

Vulgar Latin Calcea (garment covering foot and leg) , from Latin Calceus shoe.

Calculus Calculī diminutive of calx, pebble, stone, reckoning, calculating, abacus pebble, gall-bladder stone • a Latrunculi game piece Lūdus Latrunculōrum

Latin Calcārius (“of or pertaining to lime”), derived from calx (“lime”). Similar to Calcium.

Caliga military leather shoe or boot Caligula
