Very interesting. Well done SoM.

This passage I find fascinating
Quote:
the title of 'Hellene' a badge of education rather than of common descent (Isocrates, Panegyricus, 50. http://www.classicpersuasion.org/pw/...es/pwisoc4.htm).
A Hellene is someone who is educated. This is worth exploring further. How many other references are there attributing to this fact?
