The town Baia de Arama=baia"bath"+arama"copper" means the copper bath/mine. In romanian language, a mine("mina") is also called "baia". Is not far away from Ada-Kaleh, just a few 30-35 km NE from it.
Oricalchum is basicly "copper from the mountain", is not a mixing of metals, but for the greeks this term was generalized as "metal"...iron for example, wich is also abundand in these mountains from SW Romania in Mehedintzi county and surroudings. I am a little bit tired, i didn't sleep last night, so pay attention to this discussion:[forums.atlantisrising.com]
In romanian language, the verb "a cocli" means "to be oxidated/greenish"(remember The Statue of Liberty?).
"Inel coclit" for example, means "oxidated copper ring" or "fake gold ring".
We also have the verbe "a cloci"-"to warm the eggs"(the hen of course), but the expression "ou clocit" means "rotten egg". :)
Also, for greeks, the cooper was "erythros"="RED".
Compare "Erythros" with "Erytheia"-Orshova/Rushava-"the red one" names of Ada-Kaleh island!
The entire area is made from red mountains!
There are some weird ideas abut orichalcum, one from some romanian "researchers" is about that "chihlimbar"("amber" in romanian language) is orichalcum(is "brown" anyway)-remember "ambrozia", the food of the gods? :)
Also, the romanian word "arama" is the term for "raw
copper", while "alama" is "copper worked-brass". "Alamuri"(wich is always a plural) means "brass winds/brassware/blowing music instruments".
"Aramiu" or "maro"("brown"-wich is the color of coagulated blood).
