Something to share,  Shocked

"The sanctuary of Olympia spreads around the green wooded feet of the Kronion hill, where the rivers Alpheios and Cladeos meet. The valley amongst the two rivers was in ancient times full of wild olive trees, poplars, oaks, pines and plane trees and it was these trees that gave the centre of the sanctuary the name Altis, meaning alsos (grove).
The Altis is the name given to the area in Olympia that comprises the main religious buildings, temples and votive offerings of the sanctuary. Out of the enclosure were the auxiliary buildings, priests' houses, baths, the areas for the preparation of the athletes, guest houses along with other buildings. "

ALTItudinouS exists, and means top of the world, but ALTIS does not mean anything, right? It's just a name.

So toyota given this model name - Altis and the area in Olympia that comprises the main religious buildings, temples and votive offerings of the sanctuary also name ALTIS.

Thus, the word altis does not exist (it's just a name), am i right?  Huh

basically, it is 'top of the world' if u refer to d interview wif d cheif designer (a japanese of course)

by dat, it means 'top in its class' (which is actually very true when it was luanched in 2001) wif class leading accessories n safety gadgets - VSC, TRC, etc.

i cant wait for d completely new altis as it sure will want d title back from d 2006 civic  Wink
