DE RADA: THE UNKNOWN ORIGIN OF THE NAME IN LATIN “GRECI” OR “GRAI” IS “GRAU” (WOMAN) IN PELLAZGO-ALBANIA
I have my doubts, that the unknown origin of the all-Latin name “Greci” or “Grai”, is “Grau” (woman) in Pelasgian-Albanian: making us assume the hostile feeling of the Titanic Pelasgians, harsh and hard, broken and driven from their places, by the Asian Hellenes, with soft forms and tongues and delicate cults.
