nephthys: (psyche)
new insights concerning the status of women in Ancient Greece. as it seems they had way more power and influence than anticipated by former archeologists "'The problem has been that up until recently our interpretation of life in Ancient Greece has been the work of a previous generations of archaeologists, then a male-oriented profession and who interpreted their findings in a male-oriented way. That is changing now and women in Ancient Greece are being seen in a new light.'" <-- citation from linked text

my love for Ancient Greece, I thought it couldn't grow any fonder. what a pleasant surprise :)

"Pleasure is the greatest incentive to evil" - Plato
nephthys: (psyche)
Rex superum Phrygii quondam Ganymedis amore
arsit, et inventum est aliquid, quod Iuppiter esse,
quam quod erat, mallet. nulla tamen alite verti
dignatur, nisi quae posset sua fulmina ferre.
nec mora, percusso mendacibus aere pennis
abripit Iliaden, qui nunc quoque pocula miscet
invitaque Iovi nectar Iunone ministrat.


[einer der gründe, warum ich ovids metamophosen als spazialthema genommen habe, trotz des wahnsinns. ich hatte vergessen, wie kunstvoll er schrieb.]
