Sallust made Thucydides his model, and took great pains with his style. This type of limestone was used in small amounts to provide decorative touches of color. For example, regarding the birth of Aphrodite, one story indicates she was born from the sea foam (on the shell of a scallop).

First and foremost was the realisation that ALL IS ONE, as Nietzsche writes; Greek philosophy seems to begin with a preposterous fancy, with the proposition that water is the origin and mother-womb of all things. It could not have been by face or figure, the way modern actors are most often recognized, because an ancient actor's features were not visible on stage. AMYNTA (Greek: Αμυντα): Feminine form of Greek Amyntas, meaning "defender."

What do the Celtic people believe in the afterlife? The most notable example is The Book of the Dead, a manuscript that was intended to help the deceased in the afterlife. Nineteenth-century English literature usually  includes Lamb (though not Bentham), Macaulay (but not Marx), Mill  (but not Darwin or Herbert Spencer).

The performance of the defenders at the battle of Thermopylae is often used as an example of the advantages of training, equipment, and good use of terrain to maximize an army’s potential and has become a symbol of courage against overwhelming odds. For the Greeks, science was indistinguishable from philosophy (in fact, science was called "natural philosophy" in the West right up to the 18th century).

This is just another such, although my intention in this website is to emphasize ease of use over authoritativeness, and perspective over comprehensiveness. The history of Ancient Greece falls into four major divisions. You need names for things, just as if they had a rigid permanence, but the very river in which you bathe a second time is no longer the same one which you entered before.
