 info: DACIAN LANGUAGE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
Beginning around the 1950's, the Bulgarian linguist Vladimir Georgiev (and later Ivan Duridanov) proposed that the Dacian language was in the same language group with the Albanian language, a language branch termed Daco-Moesian (or Daco-Mysian), Moesian (or Mysian) being thought of as a transitional dialect between Dacian and Thracian.
The Dacian language may form the substratum of the Romanian language, which developed from the Vulgar Latin spoken in the Balkans north of the Jirecek line that roughly divides Latin influence from Greek influence.
Whether Dacian in fact forms the substratum of Romanian is disputed (see Origin of Romanians), yet this theory does not rely on the Romanization having occured in Dacia, as Dacian was also spoken in Moesia, and as far south as Dardania.

That is the correct meaning of 'draco' in general, but the wording of the section you quote makes it look as if the author was saying that the draco was a form of standard.
On http://www.scoutingresources.org.uk/countries_flags.html you will find: "Conventional wisdom is that the "draco" standards of the Romans were adopted by the Britons, probably as a metal (possibly real gold) head with a windsock type of body made of silk.
The dragon standard was perhaps first seen in Britain in the shape of the "draco" a standard carried by the cohorts of the Roman legion.

The normal historical Dacian tactic of canalizing an enemy attack with difficult terrain, absorbing its initial shock with massed infantry, then hitting it in the flank with impetuous falx charges is hard to improve on.

Yes, Draco's always adorable when he's in love with Ginny to the point of being her slave.
Either way, Draco and Ginny's son is named Hayden- a name I've come to agree on.
I would think that if Draco and Ginny ever reproduced, the boy would have blonde hair, brown eyes, and a dimple in one cheek,(for some reason, I always envisioned Ginny with one) and he would also have the tendency to be more like his mother.

She said the portion of the Dragon soul group which broke off, became DRACO - fractionated, and un-ensouled, and 'fallen', and became our genetic ancestors (Sumer), was only a tiny part of the Dragon line, but enough to become the chief parasites of our planet for millenia.
With the Draco I kept trying to explain to them the need for peace, and that if all the wars and destruction continued that they would eventually destroy themselves.
I had asked the Draco for their help, and they came to our aid and played a major role in defeating the attacking forces.

The Latin word draco, as in the constellation Draco, comes directly from Greek drakones.
The Dragon is sometimes known by the Nordic word, ormr (Old English wyrm means serpent — draca means dragon).
Though the Latin is draco, draconis, it has been supposed by some scholars, including John Tanke of the University of Michigan, that the word dragon comes from the Old Norse draugr, which literally means a spirit who guards the burial mound of a king (compare Tolkien's 'barrow-wights').

This is usually described as a staff surmounted with the head of an ass.
However, it is best identified as a 'draco', a dragon military standard adopted by certain detachments of the Roman legions from their contact with Dacian, Scythian and Sarmatian warriors.
Comprised of a long cloth tube attached a hollow metal head of a wolf, the draco apparently would make a menacing sound and its tail would fly erect as the standard bearer charged into battle.
