No time for blogging lately as I am currently awash in geekiness as I struggle to turn in my papers for the waning semester. Numero uno compares Attalid and Seleucid success at empire-building with Demetrius Poliorcetes’ (King of Macedonia) lack of it; number two is a much longer research paper examining ethnicity issues in the Carolingian Stuttgart Psalter (820-830 AD), and three is an essay due next week attempting to explain why Alexander the Great, having arrived at Gordion and having famously untied the Gordian knot, suddenly headed south and messed around in Egypt for two years instead of moving out at once toward Babylon to confront Darius and seize the Persian Empire.
