  ngo'; QI'tu' rur 
  old as Qui'Tu (common simile) KGT 

(KGT 130):  The word {ngo'} in the phrase above means old as opposed to new. Thus, it would be applied to objects or ideas, but not to animals or people. To say that a person is extremely old, the phrase would be {qan; QI'tu' rur} ("He/she is as old as Qui'Tu").
