Ozymandius, the infamous long-dead subject of two famous sonnets composed by Shelley and Smith. What does this king's name mean? Just what is the etymology of Ozymandius? The ending suffix (-us/-os) is Latin/Greek masculine, though what of "Ozymandi"? is it Mediterranean, Mid-Eastern or other? Also, can "Ozyman" be a name, word or word-combination in any-given language?
