    Ani (the sun) is On, Jan, in Greece, the Etruscan Jonn, Jan-us, an ancient king of Italy, the river Anio, Jaanai, a Bible-name, Jan-us, with two faces, the Roman war-god, his name Ean-us, and Eani, a people.  From Ani comes, with the light of the sun, Ani-mation (Ani-matio), Ani-ma, "the soul, the life," and Ani-mare, the verb "to ani-mate."  It is the last syllable of Dag-ōn, the sun-god with the extremity of a fish, and Odacon, "the man-fish" of the Babylonian legend.  We may compare with the syllables of Dag-ōn the German Tag, meaning "day," the Etruscan Tag-es, and the Babylonian Oann-es (Ani, the sun-god), who rose from the sea to instruct the people in the arts of life.
