Lithuanian to English translations [Non-PRO]
Lithuanian term or phrase:nog sunas
This is an inscription on a silver snuff-box, sent from America by a son to a father. An engraved Lithuanian Knight appears above the inscription. Noga in Polish means leg or foot, but the inscription is only "nog". Son in Polish is "syn". Son in Lithuanian is "sunus". Since this phrase was engraved in 1896, could that account for the different spelling? Or is it misspelled? Could it mean "runaway son" or "faraway son"?
