Goto next slide"Ditat Deus"

When:

Lookups spiked on May 8, 2013.

Why:

An unlikely way to learn Latin: people watching the Jodi Arias murder trial on TV looked up this phrase after seeing it on the Arizona state seal in the courtroom.

Ditat Deus is Latin for "God enriches."

Many U.S. states have Latin mottos on their official seals, also known as "great seals." A "great seal" is "a large seal that constitutes an emblem of sovereignty and is used especially for the authentication of important documents."
