huh? Don't tell me that the change/alternance of "sci" to "ste" was
already made by "some" in the time of Strabo.
That is really intriguing ..



The Ligurians are said to be behind -sc- toponyms in Spain BUT unless, Lusitanian was the same language as Ligurian, we're probably dealing with a misidentification. The -sc- language in Spasin has been called "Ligurian," Illyrian," Sorotaptic" and "Italoid". Lusitanian was most likely a Q-Latin language but possibly "Para-Celtic" --a Celtic language that branched off before the /p/ was lost.
