THIS IS ME doing my robber-bird number. Saw something bright and pretty and snatched it up and brought it home. Doesn’t matter I can’t use it right now. (Who has time.) I can see it feeding my ‘satiable curtsiosity in the future.
The roll below is stolen from a WordPress plugin done up by a project called Ancient World Linked Data.
Since I don’t blog nearly as much as I might like to about the Classical World, I suspect I wouldn’t get much use out of the plugin. However, the list of sites… Well. Talk about your wikiwanders.
Ancient World Linked Data for WordPress
Encyclopedia of Life (eol.org)
Internet Archive (archive.org)
Library of Congress (lccn.loc.gov)
Munzkabinett Berlin (smb.museum)
Open Context (opencontext.org)
Portable Antiquities Scheme (finds.org.uk)
Wikipedia FR (fr.wikipedia.org)
Yale Art Gallery (ecatalogue.art.yale.edu)
So I just wanted to park this until I get a moment to put it someplace I can refer to it and explore it and amuse myself with it. Perhaps some of you might find it interesting, amusing, enlightening as well. If so, enjoy.
As I massaged the links and formatting, I found myself reminded that schola means “leisure” in Greek — because you can’t be a scholar if you have to grub in the dirt for your daily bread and that stoa was a porch, and the Stoics was just a bunch of dogs up on the porch who understood what it took to join the big dogs on the porch.
Or something like that.
