    Default There is no J in Latin

    So, I'm a little curious about the spelling choice. My Latin dictionary for J simply says, "See I".

    Game from french devs, company named AGEod. So, I can figure the J, as in french AGE is spoken the same as AJE.

    There is no J in Latin
    Yet Julius Caesar is always spelt with a "J".

    Nobody complains about that.

    Indeed ... plus making an I as in old Latin would have meant an acronym being AIE.......which we cannot use for many reason (and not only copyright of Agence Internationale de l'Energie)....so let's close the matter.
    Thanks
