The translation, of course, is, "Jesus the Nazarene King of the Jews" and if

to Pilate that the sign should read, "He _said_ he was King of the Jews."
And Pilate replied, "What I have written, I have written."
Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum
I just read today that according to one author, this was supposed to be a
description of his 'crime', viz. insurrection against Roman authority.
anyway, off topic; my apologies.
sure, Pilate executed him for insurrection.
but I messed up my main point which was, I didn't realize they
actually hanged a sign on the cross naming the offense. I thought it
was some later-day artist's fancy.
BTW, the first Latin Senatus PopulusQue Romanus had Populus misspelled. Sorry
yeah, I know but I've played enough Latin on the list for now; I did
look up 'pupulus' though and it's funny: means 'little boy' or a
'puppet'. may be more truth in that!
