Civitas
In the history of Rome
Rome
, the Latin term CIVITAS (plural CIVITATES), according to Cicero
Cicero
in the time of the late Roman Republic , was the social body of the CIVES, or citizens , united by law (concilium coetusque hominum jure sociati). It is the law that binds them together, giving them responsibilities (munera) on the one hand and rights of citizenship on the other. The agreement (concilium) has a life of its own, creating a res publica or "public entity" (synonymous with civitas), into which individuals are born or accepted, and from which they die or are ejected. The civitas is not just the collective body of all the citizens, it is the contract binding them all together, because of which each is a CIVIS. Civitas

His birthplace has been given as Ptolemais Hermiou in the Thebaid in an uncorroborated statement by the 14th-century astronomer Theodore Meliteniotes . This is a very late attestation, however, and there is no other reason to suppose that he ever lived elsewhere than Alexandria, where he died around AD 168

Linguistic Reconstruction
LINGUISTIC RECONSTRUCTION is the practice of establishing the features of an unattested ancestor language of one or more given languages. There are two kinds of reconstruction: * INTERNAL RECONSTRUCTION uses irregularities in a single language to make inferences about an earlier stage of that language – that is, it is based on evidence from that language alone. * COMPARATIVE RECONSTRUCTION , usually referred to just as RECONSTRUCTION, establishes features of the ancestor of two or more related languages, belonging to the same language family , by means of the comparative method

Masculine Name
A GIVEN NAME (also known as a FIRST NAME or a FORENAME) is a part of a person's personal name . It identifies a specific person, and differentiates that person from other members of a group, such as a family or clan , with whom that person shares a common surname . The term given name refers to the fact that the name usually is bestowed upon a person, normally given to a child by its parents at or near the time of birth. This contrasts with a surname (also known as a family name, last name, or gentile name), which is normally inherited and shared with other members of the child's immediate family. Regnal names and religious or monastic names are special types of given names, as they are given to adults upon them receiving a crown or entering a religious order and as such are replacing the original given name of those persons. Given names are often used in a familiar and friendly manner in informal situations
