I don't know if we can trust the object at the bottom of the sea is the wheel of a charriot but anyway, this episode could have happened in the way described.
I am focused on the account itself.
I don't intend to prove anything at all. I'm just someone with curiosity about things and speak several languages. It's not about sharing curriculum vitae.

For instance, in Brazil about 180 million people know "BUNDA" is the ass. How many of them know that word was imported from Africa?

This thing about language is important and you can follow the footsteps. For example, if I write "naive" in English I wonder why we can read the same word written with 2 dots over the "i" as well (naïve)or the word "facade" which can also be written "façade" with a word that doesn't even exist in English alphabet (ç) and then you know there's French hidden there like in the word "mortgage". If millions of Americans, English, Irish or Scottish people ignore why on earth words using the same letters (ough) do have different sound:
though a tough cough and hiccough plough me through which sounds like
dhou a râf caêf end hicâp plau mi thru... maybe a conundrum for many people but I'm interested in that.

This sort of thing happen all the time. In Japan people adapted the word "ice cream" and became aizukurimu. When Americans went to Japan for the first time they couldn't pronounce "you're welcome" (after thank you=arigato) which in Japanese is "doô itamashité" and started to speak fast "don't touch my moustache".

Probably most people in Japan and Brazil are not aware some Japanese words were imported from Portuguese pirates.
Thank you (arigato) comes from Portuguese obrigado.
button (botam) comes from Portuguese botão.cow (waca) comes from Portuguese vaca.chair (kantera) comes from Portuguese cadeira.glass (bidro) comes from Portuguese vidro and so on.
