I don't think I'd mind Gubin Jastorf either. The 'generalities' on
diglossia etc were placed there because I have to shoehorn the theory
past the fact that Przeworsk and Wielbark are both presumably
Germanic-speaking and exist at the same time. I see the competition as
the traditional theory that Germanic evolved smoothly in a basically
static society stretching from Sweden to the Beskidy. Whichever
culture spoke PGmc., I think Ariovistus came from it.

Tell you what: you put your horse on the track and let's see which
performs better. Where and when would you think PGmc. was spoken?
