that I've seen
either one all that often..."
, and Andrew Lambdin-Abraham added: "I'll just jump in and say I've NEVER 
seen Cyprian.  Cypriot has always been what I'm familiar with."


Cypriot is modern usage: in Regency times, or at least in Georgette Heyer, 
Cyprian was a woman of negotiable morals, the sort who would be available to 
Corinthians.  (At least, I think that's what it meant, but I couldn't find a 
reference quickly.)
