cool!
just a few months ago I finished reading Lindsey Davis' "The Iron Hand of Mars" which takes place in Germania and deals with a very similar idea.

'If this date is confirmed, the tablet could be the oldest written record of Homer's work ever discovered' in Greece, a ministry statement said.

This was misreported as "Archaeologists may have discovered the oldest known extract of Homer's epic poem." FAKE NEWS indeed! Although the find itself is marvelous.

Here's an older fragmentary piece of the Odyssey on papyrus dating to 250 BC, half a millennium earlier!

It's hardly obscure, held as it is in the collection at The Met!

https://www.metmuseum.org/toah/works-of-art/09.182.50/

This is the first early Ptolemaic fragment of the Odyssey ever discovered. It contains three lines from Book 20 that do not occur in the standard text preserved today and is a physical testimony to the fact that local variations of this famous work existed in the third century B.C.

The Greek music is to die for. The double aulos is an incredible instrument. None of the sounds sound foreign to my ears, but the Kihara/lyre is disappointing.

Thanks Pharsalos

The massive 3rd century AD Antiquity building exposed in July 2018 underneath the Maltepe Mound, Bulgaria’s largest Ancient Thracian burial mound ever, has turned out to be a tower tomb like the ones in ancient Middle East cities such as Petra and Palmyra, and could contain the remains of Roman Emperor Philip I the Arab (r. 244 – 249 AD).

Thanks, pictures are great.  Looks like a fascinating site.  Appears that they let people just  wander through which surprises me a bit.
