To make the ancients speak, we must feed them with our own blood’ Wilamowitz

Hermes was going to use me to make a lyra but I convinced him to use a tortoise instead. Impressed, he gave me the power of philology.

The blog is focused on the Classical world, a sort of scratch pad for my thoughts. There’s a definite bias towards Greek but I’m sure the Romans will get a showing or two now and then. Think musings rather than proper essays, the intent is to take part in the broader conversation found all over the ‘net.  I’ll probably throw some book reviews in as well.

I can also be found on Twitter, in English, Latin, and Modern Greek.
