Podlipoglav (pronounced [pɔˈdliːpɔɡlau̯]) is a village in the City Municipality of Ljubljana in central Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region.[2]

Name

The name Podlipoglav is a fused prepositional phrase meaning 'below Lipoglav' in which the noun has lost its case ending. The name Lipoglav itself is derived from *Lupoglav, presumably from *lupъ 'bare, exposed', thus meaning 'bare hilltop'.[3] The village was known as Podlipoglou in German in the past.[4]

History

A Roman period burial ground with 33 1st- and 2nd-century burials was partially excavated in Podlipoglav by the City Museum of Ljubljana in 1997. Some of the finds, including oil lamps and bronze bracelets, date from the 4th or 5th century AD.[5]
