ignoratia iuncti. ignorantes iuncti.


Explanation:
Two options.

First, "ignorantiâ iuncti" (where the final "a" in the first word is long...only elementary texts write a mark over the letter to show that it is "long"). This would closely approximate "United in/by ignorance." (The ablative "ignorantiâ" specifies a general relationship to the participle [here "iuncti"], such as "in, by, because of", and so on.]

Second, "ignorantes iuncti" or even "nescientes iuncti". This approximates "United not knowing, united although/since we don't know."
