Paul V Borghese / PAVLVS V BVRGHESIVS


Did Pope Paul V really have the Borghese Family name inscribed at the main portico of the Basillica at St Peters ? Or does it spell something else. Is it nepotism or somthing else? What is the meaning of the word BVRGHESIVS ? Burghesius ? The Roman spelling of Borghese ? After the word PAVLVS the Lettr V indicates the Roman Numeral 5. Is the Letter for the Roman Numeral a V or a U ?

Although the Roman numerals are now written with letters of the Roman alphabet, they were originally independent symbols. The Etruscans, for example, used I Λ X ⋔ 8 ⊕ for I V X L C M,

If Etruscan, the V can be inverted to A, is the word then BARGHESIAS ? BAR-GHESIAS
(Hebrew - Son of Ghesias) Who is Ghesias ?
Doing a search on Google I can find the following reference to Barghesius -

Marcus Tullius Cicero (January 3, 106 BC – December 7, 43 BC) was a Roman philosopher, statesman, lawyer, political theorist, and Roman constitutionalist. He was member of a wealthy family of the equestrian order, and is widely considered one of Rome's greatest orators and prose stylists.

Cicero is generally perceived to be one of the most versatile minds of ancient Rome. He introduced the Romans to the chief schools of Greek philosophy and created a Latin philosophical vocabulary, distinguishing himself as a linguist, translator, and philosopher. An impressive orator and successful lawyer, Cicero probably thought his political career was his most important achievement.
