Description   EN   

 "The city opposite the mouth of the (Licking) River", "ville" is French for "city", "anti" is Greek for "opposite", "os" is Latin for "mouth", and "L" was all that was included of "Licking River."

In 1790, Arthur St. Clair, the governor of the Northwest Territory, changed the name of the settlement to "Cincinnati" in honor of the Society of the Cincinnati, of which he was president. The society gets its name from Cincinnatus, the Roman general and dictator, who saved the city of Rome from destruction and then quietly retired to his farm. The society honored the ideal of return to civilian life by military officers following the Revolution rather than imposing military rule. To this day, Cincinnati in particular, and Ohio in general, is home to a disproportionately large number of descendants of Revolutionary War soldiers who were granted lands in the state. Cincinnati's connection with Rome still exists today through its nickname of "The City of Seven Hills" (a phrase commonly associated with Rome) and the town twinning program of Sister Cities International.

In 1997 the Ohio river flooded to the point that the waterline was avove Cincinnatus' knees. 

To log this cache you must do the following:

1. Take a photo of you or your gps unit with Cincinnatu in the background

2. Follow the waypoint coords and find the section that outlines recorded human history and enter the number in the password.

What a cool statue!  I always wondered how this city got its name, and I was pleased to meet this interesting gentleman!  In traveling the short distance to the additional waypoint, I interrupted a young couple involved in an activity not involving caching.  I quickly excused myself (It was indeed a picturesque spot for that kind of activity) and then found the area I needed to search.  Some interesting info there---This was my ninth find of this neat series.
