Poem inclusion?

I probably won't see this page again, but I would just like to raise the issue on whether or not the poem in this article is of any relevance. I chose not to remove it, but I don't know, really. -x42bn6 08:01, 29 July 2005 (UTC)

It isn't a poem, though I agree it might almost look like one. It is a remark of historian John Speed. The poem-like layout simply tries to reproduce Speed's original layout, which is found upon a 1626 map of the Middle East. If it is of relevance I am not sure of either, but it is not a poem. /The Phoenix 14:41, 20 August 2005 (UTC)

Hormuz in Marco Polo's book

The city of Hormuz or Ormus is mentioned in the travels for Marco Polo. Could be interesting to add that information.

John Speed passage

Why not read the '?' as long s? Why not read mothe r?itie as mother Citie, given that the mystery letter is said to look like '(' ? --Tamfang (talk) 20:52, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes, in reality of course this '?' (i.e., long s) is simply how they usually printed "s" in certain positions in those (not just in English, but in Latin, German, and other European languages). There is no reason to reproduce it as anything other than plain "s" when we're quoting old authors today. Vmenkov (talk) 04:15, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Ormus (Chemical)

The list of rulers?

I am wondering where the list of rulers is coming from? Other than spellings being wrong (Seyf ud-din not Serf ud-din), the list doesn't match either Mo'ini's history OR the portuguese archival documents.

Major Edits

This article is a disaster. It actually provides very little information on Hormuz and even renders the name in the obsolete, medieval European way, while the native sources always call it Hormuz (Shabankareyi, Mo'ini, Vassaf, etc.). It also lacks any information about the political history of the original city on the southern coast of Iran or the kingdom that later grew out of the island of Jarun/Hormuz. I am going to do major edits on this page and turn it into a respectable page. --BaghdadKavad (talk) 21:59, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

What does a certain Muhammad Deramku(h/b?) mean? --Tamfang (talk) 01:36, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

You mean what I mean from the sentence? Well "a certain" is really just a figure of speech. I put the h/b speculation because sources sometimes over-correct his name to Deramkuh (meaning unknown) or try to say it is Deramkub (for Dirham-kub "Dirham issuer"). Both seem to me to be folk etymologies. I just include them for people who might have seen both version. --BaghdadKavad (talk) 10:55, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

I have added a major section to the pre-Portuguese history. I will be adding references to it. --BaghdadKavad (talk) 11:31, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
