Two, I just learned something today and wanted to pass it on. I know that you, I'm sure, have already known this for some time, but, well, it is new to me. I've always thought Pandora had a box. You know, Pandora's box - right? Well, the Greek poet Hesiodus said she had a pithos, this is (so I'm told since I don't speak Greek, maybe Ailia can help me since she can) a jar for storing grain. Everyone went along for years saying Pandora's jar until Erasmus published Adagia, in which he translated it as box. Since he was so widely read at the time,
the use of box became more common than jar.
I don't know what is worse, the fact that I, while never claiming to be a scholar, didn't know this or from the fact that I learned it from a children's book
my son checked out of his school library.
