|I think there is a typo in the latin where you kept a "u" in aeuum rather than aevum. |

I see aevum. But either way, aeuum and aevum are the same thing. Romans only had one letter for it - V, also written sometimes closer to the U, but consistent nonetheless. That is, it either would have been AEVVM or AEUUM depending on the the medium of the writing. It's only a modern typography that allows us to write the u for the vowels and the v for the consonants of what was the same letter in Roman times.

|I think you are referring to the scanned version, where indeed it says aeuum. Although, Chris, you are right, I will replace aeuum in the scanned version by aevum to get it consistent. Thanks!|
