Subject: Palladis Tamia
Can someone translate the title _Palladis Tamia_? The work is
subtitled, "Wit's Treasury." Is that to be taken as a translation of
the title? "Palladis" is apparently the genitive of "Pallas" or Athena,
who is associated with wisdom, so "Palladis" could mean "wit's." But I
cannot find "Tamia" in any Latin-English dictionary.
Are there any Latin scholars out there?
