First time asking. :)

As the title suggests, I wanted to know the difference between the two names for the Persian Empire in Latin. (I'm not even sure if both are used...)

I've tried asking other people before coming here, but I never got a clear answer.

Thank you!

  • Wikipedia about Latin: Adjectives and participles usually directly followed nouns, unless they were adjectives of beauty, size, quantity, goodness, or truth, in which case they preceded the noun being modified. – bytebuster Jan 16 '15 at 7:09
  • @bytebuster. It is incredible how much rubbish you can read in Wikipedia. – fdb Feb 11 '19 at 11:59

There is only stylistic difference. Attributes in Latin can precede or follow the head noun so both are well-formed and have the same meaning.
