Florentium or Illinium?

Abstract

MY attention has been directed to the statement of Prof. Rolla in NATURE for April 30, p. 637, in which he claims priority for the name florentium for element No. 61. He says: “We believe, then, that the priority in the discovery of element No. 61 belongs instead to those who first had sure data as to its existence”.
