Character: Ajax in Iliad

Quite often Ajax is mentioned in the Iliad without much context and so it is unclear whether it is referring to Locrian (character: ajax_1) or Telamonian Ajax (character: ajax_2). Ex: Agamemnon says in 1.140 "let some chief man among us be in command, either Ajax, or Idomeneus, or yourself, son of Peleus." For now I am going to leave these in the xml file marked up as <name type="character" corresp="characters.xml#ajax"> even though it will not bring up a description (since there is no character: ajax) wherever it is unclear, but I will mark up those that are obvious.

Apollodorus book 1

I have completed revisions to Apollodorus book 1. Please feel free to browse on the reader and click characters, places, and groups. There ought not to be any "character_xx" type of entries in book 1 at this point and all places cited ought to have coordinates (if it's a "real" place). In addition, many of the "character_xx" types of problems were fixed but also descriptions were added for many characters to disambiguate them (ex: Lycurgus_1, Lycurgus_2, all the way to 5). This ought to make it easier when editing to find out which version of a character is which, although of course you can always use the events.xml tab to get more insight.

Character: Tantalus

In the characters.xml file there are 2 entries for Tantalus, tantalus_1 is the father of Niobe (niobe_2) and spouse of Clytaemnestra, and tantalus_2 has no details. In Apollod. 3.5.6 the myth of Amphion and Niobe, daughter of Tantalus (tantalus_1), marrying and having children, one of which is also named Tantalus (tantalus_2) all of these children are in turn killed by Apollo and Artemis. Later on, in Apollod. Epitome 1.12.15 Tantalus is listed as the son of Thyestes who was slain with his newborn by Agamemnon so he could take Clytaemnestra for himself. This Tantalus is listed as tantalus_1, is this correct? i.e. is Tantalus father of Niobe the same as Tantalus son of Tyestes? Furthermore, in Epitome 1.2.1 there is the tale of Tantalus being punished in Hades for trying to take ambrosia from the gods. Which Tantalus is this?

Updates Nov 29

1. In Epitome 1.7.20-23 Charybdis is mentioned 3 times but was only linked once as a place. While I realize the whirlpool is a place, in this context it is referring to the sea monster who was the daughter of Poseidon and Gaia. There wasn't yet a character in the xml file, so I've updated this and linked all three references to Charybdis as a character. 2. In Library Book 1, 1.8.3 the Curetes was linked to the group of the dancing attendants of Rhea. But in this context, I believe it is referring instead to a group of men from the Curetian country (1.7.6) aka Aetolus. 3. In Library Book 1, 1.8.5 Pisander was linked to the character xml. While there is a Pisander who fights at Troy, I belief this reference is to the scholar Pisander who wrote the epic Heracleia -- as the reference is "But Pisander says" not unlike the earlier reference of "but Phereydes says" (1.4.3).

Characters not in the xml "ography" - Nov 25

In editing Apollo Epitome Book 1, I have come across a few apparent (?) characters that are not currently in characters.xml. Need to be researched to determine if they should be added or not: 1.3.1 Strife; 1.3.2 Phereclus; 1.3.9 Mygdalion; 1.3.11 Oeleus (there is an Oileus in the xml file); 1.3.35 Talaemenes and Hippolochus ----- Thanks Louise I have looked into these and made corrections. Strife, Phereclus, and Mydgalion were added to characters.xml. Oeleus is definitely Oileus, it was probably misspelled. Oileus is always cited as the father of Ajax so I added an "aka Oeleus" because the Epitome is the only place it looks misspelled. Talaemenes and Hippolochus were in the database but had spelling errors (Telaemenes/Hippolchus) and these were fixed. I also marked up these characters in the apollodorus.xml file afterwards. -Matt

Ajax in Apollo Epitome

There are two XML IDs for the character Ajax in characters.xml. ajax_1 is just a persName and ajax_2 is a persName with age = 7. So far in the Epitome, it appears that all the Ajax entries link to ajax_xx, so it needs to be determined which Ajax ID in characters.xml they should be linked to. Is one the Ajax who goes crazy, kills that cattle, and dies (1.5.6) and the other the Ajax who is mentioned after that? I discovered the issue at 1.6.6 where there is an instance of Ajax that isn't linked. ----- The first Ajax, ajax_1 (Ajax the lesser, the Locrian) and ajax_2 (Telamonian Ajax) are sometimes very clear which one is which, but sometimes aren't. I went through each entry in Epitome and made the appropriate changes, but feel free to revise them. It seems to me that Telamonian Ajax (#2) was the one who went wild and killed sheep (or cattle) after he lost Achilles' armor to Odysseus at the funeral games. This was apparently covered in Sophocles' play entitled Ajax, and Apollodorus is referring to it here. Locrian Ajax is mostly referred to by Apollodorus in dealing with the capture of Cassandra within the temple. -Matt

Places.xml questions - Nov 24

In editing Apollo Epitome Book 1, I have come across a few apparent (?) places that are not currently in places.xml. Need to be researched to determine if they should be added or not: 1.1.2 Megarian territory (should this just link to the Megara coordinates??); 1.1.13 Icarus "fell into the sea called after him Icarian" -- there is an Icarion Sea so need to determine if these are the same or not; 1.2.8 Cape Geraestus -----The location for Icarion Sea (xml:id="icarionSea") ought to be correct. Cape Geraestus was found and added to places.xml file. Also I found there is a character named Geraestus (a cyclops, but not the primordial type brother to the hecatonchires). I added this character to the characters.xml file and listed him under the group "cyclops" (the group "cyclopes" contains the three primordial cyclopes and its description states they are the primordial ones, rather than the "other cyclops" type such as Polyphemus and others mentioned by Nonnus and others). -Matt

Places.xml updates - Nov. 16 2011

After a quick review of place names in the Iliad, I found that for example Homer consistently uses Ilion rather than Troy (96 such entries), and Pylos rather than Apollodorus' spelling, Pylus (11 entries). I am going through and adding aka's to such places and made the decision to have Pylos be the primary spelling and Pylus as the aka within the xml file. When doing something like this always remember to go to each file which contains the old spelling and find and replace with the newer spelling, otherwise the reader will not properly display the place (or character in the event of characters) Similarly, Troy is the primary name with Ilion and Ilium being aka descriptions within the xml. I am also in the process of revising character descriptions where there are multiple characters with the same name so the job of identifying which is which within apollodorus.xml and iliad.xml files will be much easier and less laborious. As I do this, I have added in aka's wherever it is appropriate. So far the best example is Chryseis, daughter of Chryses the priest of Apollo in the Trojan War. She also goes by Astynome, which was added as an aka.

exist webapps - get referer

Needed to know the name of the script that makes an HTTP request; assuming a referer url like http://somedomain.com/script.xql?param=value

Added a functx function:
declare function inc:substring-after-last-match
( $arg as xs:string? ,
$regex as xs:string ) as xs:string {
replace($arg,concat('^.*',$regex),'')
};

Used it like this:
let $referer := substring-before(inc:substring-after-last-match(request:get-header("referer"),'/'),'?')

Provides "script.xql" as the referer.

Lucene - boost relevancy based on qname

TIL that you can boost results by adjusting your lucene index to rank certain types of results higher than others.
Short version: add this: <text qname="placeName" boost="2.0"/> to your collection.xconf to double the relevancy of results marked up with 'placeName'.
Long version: see docs here.

case-insensitive searching in eXist

Set up your lucene instructions in collection.xconf so that you're using the standard analyzer instead of the whitespace analyzer (which is the rather inflexible default). Here's what's inside my lucene structure:

<analyzer id="sa" class="org.apache.lucene.analysis.standard.StandardAnalyzer"/>
<analyzer id="ws" class="org.apache.lucene.analysis.WhitespaceAnalyzer"/>

Progress on xml

On and off for the last couple of weeks I've been working on the Perseus-generated xml that MP will be editing, trying to make it as coherent as possible.
I now have several reasonable P5 data files (apollodorus.xml,characters.xml,groups.xml,events.xml) using a schema generated using the odd-by-example script.
The cruft left over from the P4 original will need to be addressed, though (chunks wrapped in "div1" for example). Ideally, I'd like to enclose each logical chunk (e.g. Apollodorus 1.1.1) in a div with an appropriate xml id, but the problem is that I'd end up with overlapping hierarchies. I assume that's why milestones were used by the Perseus project.

Revisions: Apollodorus 2.5.10-3.1.1

§ 2.5.10 - ID1989/2214, Echidna and Poseidon are god parents of 'an immortal dragon' (if this is referring to Orthus, then can we delete these 2 records? There is no specific mention in 2.5.10 of a dragon borne to Echidna and Poseidon) "character/character/citation" **Moved to 2.5.11**
- ID1342, Hercules puts up pillars (would it be ok to be more specific here, "at the boundaries of Europe and Libya [is this modern day Gibraltar-ish area?]") "event/character/citation" **Nevermind**
§ - ID2622-2623, A bull from Geryon's herd escapes Hercules (Apollo and Hyacinth (1) are mentioned as being involved in this event, but I cannot find them in the text, please clarify) "event/character/citation" **Deleted Apollo & Hyacinth from this event**
§ 2.5.11 - Typhon and Echidna are god parents of the 'immortal dragon' with a hundred heads (add relationships?) "character/character/citation" **Already done**
§ - ID450, Emathion is son of [blank] (change father to "Tithonus"?) "character/character/citation" **Deleted this record, added citation to ID2766 which already cited relationship**
- Should we add an event "Hercules is ordered to do an eleventh labor, fetching golden apples from the Hesperides, since Eurystheus did not acknowledge two of Hercules' labours"?
- ID1395, Phrasius advises the Egyptians to make human sacrifices to Zeus (should this be changed to reflect that in particular strangers were sacrificed, and that Phrasius himself was the first to be sacrificed?) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID1396, Hercules steals a cow and eats it (text says he sacrificed a bullock, or young bull, should this say "bull" instead?) "event/character/citation"
§ 2.5.12 - ID1418-1419, Hercules goes to be initiated (Hercules and Eumolpus (1) are noted, should we also add Pylius? Text says "since [Hercules] proposed to be initiated as the adoptive son of Pylius") "event/character/citation"
2.6
2.6.1 - ok
2.6.2 - Add event "Hercules gets an oracle by himself, which declares that to be free of disease he must be sold, and serve for three years"?
2.6.3 - ID1461-1462, Tmolus rules Lydia, Omphale takes over after he dies (text says "…Omphale, daughter of Iardanes, queen of Lydia, to whom at his death her husband Tmolus had bequeathed the government", change to say "Tmolus rules Lydia with Omphale, after her father Iardanes dies and bequeathes Lydia to Tmolus"?) "event/character/citation" **Please double-check this, I am unsure about it**
§ - ID523, ibid. (change location of event to "Lydia"?) "event/place"
§ - ID1471, Hercules buries Icarus (Hercules is involved in this event, add Icarus also?) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID1475, Hercules musters a group of volunteers to sail to Troy (doesn't belong in 2.6.3, move to 2.6.4) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID532, ibid. "event/place"
§ 2.6.4 - Add Podarces as son of Laomedon (1)? Also, Podarces is referred to as Priam in the text, add Priam as son of Laomedon (1) also?
§ - ID85/499, Hercules' expedition to Ilium (Oicles and Telamon are part of this group, but not Hercules, add?) "group/character/citation"
* - Hercules thanks Telamon by giving him Hesione as a prize, does this mean that she is his spouse? Please clarify, also for future references of spoils of war if humans are taken does that make them spouses or slaves, or both? I suppose context will be very important in issues like this.
2.7
2.7.1 - ok
2.7.2 - ok
§ 2.7.3 - ID547, Hercules attacks the Lacedaemon with Cepheus… (change to "Hercules attacks Lacedaemon…"?) "event/place" **Also added this to the "event/character/citation" tab and cited characters: Hercules, Cepheus (4), Hippocoon (2), Icarius (1), Tyndareus (2), Iphicles, Dorycleus, Scaeus, Enarophorus, Eutiches, Bucolus (2), Lycaethus (1), Tebrus, Hippothous (2), Eurytus (5), Hippocorystes, Alcinus, Alcon. This is already cited in 3.10.5 so I added citations for 2.7.3 as well**
§ 2.7.4 - ID554, A bull from Geryon's herd escapes Hercules (does not belong in 2.7.4) "event/place" **Deleted**
2.7.5 - ok
* 2.7.6 - ID466, Architeles is mortal father of Eunomos (Frazer's footnote says that his name is "variously given as Eunomus, Ennomus, Eurynomus, Archias, Cherias, and Cyathus", if we use Eunomus should we change spelling? Also, text doesn't explicitly name the victim, other than he was a kinsman of Oeneus and son of Architeles) "character/character/citation"
- ID1546-1548, Hercules accidentally kills Eunomos… (ibid., change to "Hercules accidentally kills son of Architeles/Eunomus…"?) "event/character/citation"
- ID564, Nessus ferries Deianira across the river… (place is cited as "Lycormas", but text says "he came to the river Evenus", change to "Evenus"?) "event/place"
§ 2.7.7 - ID1553-1554, Hercules eats on of Thiodamas' bullocks (change spelling to "Hercules eats one of Thiodamas' bullocks"?) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID1557-1560, Hercules fights with Aegimius against the Lapiths, Hercules kills Coronus, kills Dryopes and his children (change to "…kills Laogoras, king of the Dryopes and his children"?)

§ - ID1563-1564, Hercules kills Amytor (change spelling to "Amyntor"?) "event/character/citation
* 2.7.8 - ID1414, Eury… is mortal mother of Teleutagoras (the record and text say "Eury…" is the mother, are there any other sources that give the name or is it no longer legible?) "character/character/citation"
§ - ID1381, Exole is mortal mother of Erythas (text says "Erythras", change?) "character/character/citation" **Changed character "Erythas" to "Erythras"**
* - Text mentions Hercules bore "by Anthea …", is this also lost or do we know if any other sources mention whom Hercules had with Anthea?
- I just noticed now that there are 2 entries for "Omphale", but they are not named Omphale (1) and Omphale (2) like other characters, should we check this to see if it needs to be done, or are they supposed to be the same Omphale?
§ - ID1408, Chalciope (2) is mortal mother of Thetallus (text says "Thettalus", change?) "character/character/citation" **Changed character "Thetallus" to "Thettalus"**
2.8
* 2.8.1 - Text says "the Athenians bore the brunt of war with Eurystheus, and slew his sons, Alexander, Iphimedon, Eurybius, Mentor and Perimedes. Eurystheus himself fled in a chariot…" but the records for character/character/citation state that Hercules is the father of these men. Is Eurystheus the father? It would make more sense in the context of the passage. If so, many of the records under 2.8.1 need to be changed to reflect this.
§ - Hercules/Eurystheus is mortal father of Mentor (add?) "character/character/citation" **Cited Hercules as mortal father of Mentor**
- ID1594-1595, Hyllus kills Eurystheus, cuts off his head (add "and gives it to Alcmena"?, add Alcmena as a character involved in said event also?) "event/character/citation" **Nevermind**
§ - ID1586-1591, Hercules sons, pursued from Trachis by Eurystheus…Eurystheus and his sons are killed (change to "Hercules' sons…Eurystheus and Hercules' sons are killed"?) "event/character/citation" **Changed to "Hercules' sons, pursued from Trachis by Eurystheus, take sanctuary at the altar of Mercy. Eurystheus goes to war with the Athenians, Eurystheus and his sons are killed.", also quoted Mentor in this event**
§ - ID581, Hylllus gives Eurystheus' severed head with weaving pins, who gouges out the eyes (correct spelling and change to "Hyllus gives Eurystheus' severed head to Alcmena, who gouges out the eyes of the head with weaving-pins"?) "event/place"
2.8.2 - Text mentions the Heraclids at this point, but they are not a group in the database. Should we create a group of the Heraclids?
- ID1596-1597, The sons of Hercules conquer the Peloponnese… (should we change to "The sons of Hercules, the Heraclids, conquer the Peloponnese…"?) "event/character/citation"
- Add event "The Heraclids quit the Peloponnese and dwell in Marathon", place "Marathon"?
§ 2.8.3 - ID1610, Heraclids fight for the Peloponnese… ("Tismaneus" is involved in this event, but he should be corrected in spelling to "Tisamenus") "event/character/citation" **Changed character to "Tisamenus"**
§ 2.8.4 - ID1613-1616, Temenus, Procles,Eurysthenes and Cresphontes draw lots… (add space after comma "..Procles, Eurysthenes…") "event/character/citation"

§ - Add event "founders of Messene find a fox" (place "Messene") "event/place" **Also cited character: Cresphontes**
§ - ID1626, Cresphontes murdered with two of his sons, and usurped (change to "usurped by Polyphontes"? Also, cite Polyphontes as well for this event?) "event/character/citation"

*§ - ID431, ID608-609, Europa is mortal father of Minos/Sarpedon (2)/Rhadamanthys (Europa must be a mother, is she god mother? If so, these need to be changed) "character/character/citation" **Changed to mortal mother**
§ - ID610, Laodamia (1) is mortal father of Sarpedon (2) (Laodamia must be a mother, change) "character/character/citation" **Changed to mortal mother**
* - ID1796, Poseidon is god father of Belus (not explicitly mentioned in 3.1.1, but Frazer's footnote relates this to Apollod. 2.1.4 which this record also does, should we keep this citation anyways?) "character/character/citation"

§ - ID1642, Cilix, unable to find Europa, settle in Cilicia (change spelling to "settles in Cilicia"?) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID608, ibid "event/place"
§ - Add event "Belus reigns over the Egyptians" (character "Belus"?) "event/character/citation" **Cited ID779, Belus rules over Egypt (Apollod. 2.1.4) in 3.1.1 as well**
§ - ibid (place "Egypt"?) "event/place"
§ - Event "Agenor rules Phoenicia" belongs in "event/place" with place "Phoenicia"

Revisions: Apollodorus 1.9.21-2.1.3

§ 1.9.21 - ID209, Lycurgus (2) is mortal father of Opheltes (not mentioned in 1.9.21) **Moved to 1.9.14**
§ - Add group "Harpies"? Harpys/Nicothoe/Aellopus and Ocypete/Ocythoe/Ocypode are part of this group **Added all to group "Harpy", created new character "Harpys", edited character "Aeollpusm" to correct spelling, "Aeollopus" instead**
- ID650-ID654, Zetes and Calais chase the Harpies (Aello and Aellopusm are mentioned, but not found in text, instead put Harpys/Nicothoe/Aellopus and Ocypete/Ocythoe/Ocypode?) "event/character/citation" **
- Important note: Apollodorus states in 1.2.6 that Thaumas and Electra had the Harpies, Aello and Ocypete. In 1.9.21 he uses the above names for them, which in the case of Aello he calls her Aellopus in this section. Is this a translation choice or what is happening here? Also there are two entries for "Aello" in the database, without a (#) after their names, please check what's happening here as well. The first has a note in the character tab stating "aka Nicothoe,Aellopus", while the 2nd has nothing attributed. Ought we to delete the 2nd Aello?
- ID655, Remaining Harpy flees (Ocypete is mentioned, add aliases Ocythoe and Ocypode?) "event/character/citation"
- ID656, Harpy falls from exhaustion (Ocypete is mentioned, add aliases Ocythoe and Ocypode?) "event/character/citation"
* - ID227, Harpy falls from exhaustion (Echinadian Islands is mentioned, but these are also known as Strophades Islands, add this place also?) "event/place"
§ 1.9.22 - ID210, Autolycus is mortal father of Polymede (not mentioned in 1.9.22)
§ 1.9.23 - ID211, Hagnias is mortal father of Tiphys (not mentioned in 1.9.23)
- ID234/1252, Apsyrtus is son of Idyia and Aeetes (not specifically mentioned although he is the brother of Medea, is it o.k. to assume this?) **Nevermind**
- Add event where Jason yokes the wild fire-breathing bulls in order to get the fleece? **Nevermind**
§ - ID233, Medea gets Jason the Golden Fleece (misspelled "Colchis" as "Cholcis", change?)
- Important note: There is a place in the database called "Cholcis" with GIS co-ordinates, and its note states "aka Sebastopolis". There are no events or characters related to this place in the text, but a search of "Cholcis" on perseus brings it up once in Ovid's Amores, and nowhere in Apollodorus is it cited.
§ 1.9.24 - ID676, An island speaks to the Argonauts (the text says the ship spoke to them, change?) **Changed to "The Argo speaks to the Argonauts as they pass the Apsyrtides Islands**
§ - ID684/685, Butes swims off … settles him on Lilybaeum (not mentioned in 1.9.24, belongs in 1.9.25)
1.9.25 - Add group "Phaeacians"? (Alcinous is mentioned as being king) **Nevermind**
§ 1.9.26 - ID703, Pelias forces Aeson to kill himself … kills Promachus (not mentioned in 1.9.26, belongs in 1.9.27)
§ - Add event "Argo sails past" and place "Euboea and Locris"? **Added Euboea and Locris to places for new event "Argo sails between"**
1.9.27 - ok
1.9.28 - ID1296/1881, Perses (2) is the son of Perseis and the Sun (Helios) (not mentioned in 1.9.28) **Nevermind this is inferred by being the brother of Aeetes**

BOOK 2
2.1
§ 2.1.1 - ID240, Piren is mortal father of Phoroneus (not mentioned in 2.1.1) "character/character/citation" **Deleted**
§ 2.1.2 - ID738-744, Argos rules the Peloponnese …, Argos marries and has children (Should it not be spelled "Argus"?) "event/character/citation" **Changed to Argus (2)**
2.1.3 - Argus (3) is mortal father of Iasus (1) ("Argus and Ismene…had a son Iasus", add?) "character/character/citation" **Nevermind, already done**
§ - Piren is mortal father of Io ("Hesiod and Acusilaus say that she was a daughter of Piren", add?) "character/character/citation"
- Zeus is god father of Epaphus ("Zeus seduced [Io]…" is this enough to say that he was the father?) "character/character/citation"
§ - ID2695, Telegonus (3) is spouse of Io (add vice versa?) "character/character/citation"
§ - ID756-759, Hermes rescues the cow Ino on Zeus' orders… (change "Ino" to "Io"?) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID769, Io goes looking…finds him in Syra with the wife of king Byblus (change "Syra" to "Syria"?) "event/character/citation"
§ - ID279, Hermes rescues the cow Ino on Zeus' orders… (change "Ino" to "Io"?) "event/place"
§ - ID289, Io goes looking…finds him in Syra with the wife of king Byblus (change "Syra" to "Syria"?) "event/place"
- Important note: the character "Wife of the king of Byblus" is found cited solely in the "character/character/citation" tab of Apollod. 2.1.3 as the foster mother of Epaphus (ID2329). Ought we to keep this character or delete? Specifically, is she important enough (probably not since she's not cited in any event or group) to warrant being in the database? Please check this, I'll keep her in until I hear anything further.

§ - Meleager and Dryas not included in event "starting out for the Calydonian boar hunt" (add?) "event/character/citation"
§ - Oeneus not included either, although he was the one that called together the men for the hunt (add?) "event/character/citation"
§ 1.8.3 - ID336/337, Olenus is sacked, Oeneus gets Periboea as a prize (a city is mentioned as being sacked in 1.8.3, but these details appear in 1.8.4) "event/character/citation"

§ - ID1630, Nephele is mortal mother of Helle (not mentioned in 1.9.2) "character/character/citation"

- Important note: Perieres (1) and Perieres (2), what is the difference?? Perieres (1) is in database as the son of Aeolus, whilst Perieres (2) as the son of Cynortas. However, this chapter states that Perieres (1) may have instead of being the son of Aeolus, was the son of Cynortas. Therefore, ought we to have just Perieres (1) in the database and everything cited to Perieres (2) changed to Perieres (1) instead? For now I added Perieres (1) as the spouse of Gorgophone (1). Please check this.
§ - Perieres is son of Cynortas (add?) "character/character/citation" **I added Perieres (1) as son of Cynortas, see above for why**
§ - Perieres is mortal father of Aphareus and Leucippus (1) (add?) "character/character/citation" **Same as above**

1.9.9 - Neleus is spouse of Pylus, vice versa (add?) "character/character/citation" **Nevermind**
- ID167/1213, Psidice daughter of Nestor & Anaxibia (1) (misspelled, should be "Pisidice") "character/character/citation" **There is a bit of a problem with the character Pisidice. In the database, Pisidice (1) is the daughter of Aeolus and Enarete (see 1.7.3), whilst Pisidice (2) is the daughter of Anaxibia (2) (this Anaxibia is the daughter of Bias) and Pelias (as in 1.9.10). In Apollod. 1.9.9, there is a Pisidice that is the daughter of a DIFFERENT Anaxibia (1) (daughter of Craetieus) and Nestor. Therefore, we have 3 different Pisidices, but only 2 in the database. The missing Pisidice ought to be put in and made the daughter of Nestor and Anaxibia (1). I won't change anything until I get this has been verified.**

Revisions: Apollodorus 1-1.7.10

I am going through and making corrections, mostly spelling or citations in the wrong chapters, etc. I put a § symbol to denote that I have made a revision, otherwise I am either uncertain or after going through a second time realised that said revision is unnecessary. I sometimes use ** double asterisks to denote that I added this in on my 2nd revision and want to better justify whatever change I am making.

APOLLODORUS: LIBRARY

HOMER: ILIAD 2.490-2.630

HOMER: ILIAD

CATALOGUE OF SHIPS

Note: There are many instances of place-names and character names whose spellings are transliterated from the Greek rather than romanized versions, which one are we to use for this text? It matters quite a bit, especially for characters like Aias [Ajax] who is already prominently cited in Apollodorus, for example. For spellings and corrections I was using the following text from Perseus: http://perseus.uchicago.edu/perseus-cgi/citequery3.pl?dbname=GreekFeb2011&getid=2&query=Hom.%20Il.%202

2.490-2.495 - ID599/601, Arkesilaos/Klonios are in group "Boeotian Leaders" (are we to use the Latin forms Arcesilaus/Clonius instead?) "group/character/citation"
2.490-2.510 - Add event "Boeotian Leaders send 50 ships to Troy, each ship contains 120 young Boeotian men" (characters: Peneleos (2), Leitus, Arkesilaos, Prothoenor, Klonios) "event/character/citation"
- ID1308-1313, ID1504-ID1526, "Boeotian Leaders send 50 ships to Troy, Each ship contains…" (correct to lowercase "e", "each ship contains") "event/place"
2.510-2.515 - ID2830, Ares is god father of *blank* (delete record?) "character/character/citation"
2.515-2.525 - ID605-606, Schedius (1) and Epistrophus (1) are in group "Phocaean Leaders" (check spelling with "Phocian", which one do we use?) "group/character/citation"

2.525-2.535 - ok

2.545-2.555 - Add relationship: Zeus is god father of Athena "character/character/citation"

- Text says "And Aias led from Salamis twelve ships" however he was also cited earlier following the Locrian ships. Is this a different Ajax? If so ought we to add a group for "Leaders of Salamis"?
- ID4225, Ajax sends 12 ships to Troy… (this actually is cited between lines 2.555-2.560; however Nestor and his 50 black ships are cited right on line 2.555, cite this instead and move Ajax's navy to Hom. Il. 2.555-2.565?) "event/character/citation"
- ID1409, ibid (ibid) "event/place"
2.555-2.565 - Add event "Leaders of Argos send 80 ships to Troy" (place: Argos) "event/place"
2.560-2.570 - Add relationship: Talaus is mortal father of Mecisteus (1) "character/character/citation"
2.570-2.580 - Add group "Leaders of Mycenae", cite Agamemnon? "group/character/citation"
- ID1553, Agamemnon…sends 100 ships to Troy (place cited is "Orneae", text spells it "Orneiae", double-check to see if spelling is ok) "event/place"
- Add to event "Agamemnon…sends 100 ships to Troy" places: Aegium, Aegialus, Helice "event/place"
2.580-2.590 - ID2849, Agamemnon is brother of Menelaus (change relationship to "mortal father", and change Agamemnon to "Atreus", to get away from using this relationship type) "character/character/citation"
- Add group "Leaders of Lacedaemon", cite Menelaus? "group/character/citation"

- Add to event "Menelaus…sends 60 ships to Troy place: Laas "event/place"

2.600-2.615 - Add relationship: Atreus is mortal father of Agamemnon "character/character/citation"
- Add group "Arcadian Leaders", cite Agapenor (2)? "group/character/citation"
- Add to event "King Agapenor of Arcadia sends 60 ships to Troy" places: Arcadia, Pheneos, Rhipe, Stratia, Enispe, Parrhasia "event/place"
- ID1627, King Agapenor of Arcadia sends 60 ships to Troy (place cited is "Mantinea", text spells it "Mantineia", double-check spelling) "event/place"
2.610 - ID4632, Agamemnon finds ships for Arcadians to cross the sea… (should we say "gives" instead of "finds", maybe check the original Greek verb used here) "event/character/citation"
- ID1629, ibid (ibid) "event/place"
2.615-2.620 - ID4636-4637, Epean Leaders send 40 ships to Troy (these two records, citing Diores and Polyxenus (2), ought to be in Hom. Il. 2.620-2.625, which by the way this range does not exist in the database) "event/character/citation"
- ID4637, ibid (character cited is "Polyxenus (2)", text spells it "Polyxeinus", double-check spelling) "event/character/citation"
- Add to event "Epean Leaders send 40 ships to Troy" places: Buprasium, Hyrmine, Myrsinus, Olen, Alesium (maybe double check the latter four, since Homer is saying that everybody in the lands between these joined, does that mean that they are themselves included as places or are they just boundary markers?) "event/place"
2.625-2.630 - Add group "Leaders of Dulichiuni and the Echinae", cite Meges? "group/character/citation"
- ID1632, Epean Leaders send 40 ships to Troy (doesn't belong in 2.625-2.630, nor is it correct, delete) "event/place"

- In Apollod. 1.9.1, the mother of Aeetes is spelled "Perseis" and the father is Sun (Helios). In this chapter she is called "Perse". Was there a spelling error by the author or are these two people, Perse and Perseis, different people?
- ID1171-1172, Ulysses arrives on an Aeaean island, which is inhabited by Circe (place is "Aeaean Ilse", correct spelling in the database to "Aeaean Isle"?) "event/place"

These ought to be broken into two events and the latter moved to 7.21 Also, for the latter, ought we to cite the character "Charybdis" in the event? This character isn't in the database by the way. Wikipedia says Charybdis is the daughter of Poseidon and Gaia, but lacks a source, and Apollod. Epit. E.7.21 states: "Charybdis, who thrice a day…" My understanding is that it is a place and a creature, please clarify this) "event/character/citation"

- ID306, Bias (4) is in group "Suitor of Penelope" (ibid, ID3429 cites Bias (5)) "group/character/citation"
- 33 Suitors are missing from the event "Fifty-seven suitors came from Dulichium to woo Penelope". Please add them, check that they are the right 'version' of that character. They are: Polyidus, Astylochus, Schedius, Antigonus, Marpsius, Iphidamas, Argius, Glaucus, Calydoneus, Echion, Lamas, Andraemon, Agerochus, Medon, Agrius, Promus, Ctesius, Acarnan, Cycnus, Pseras, Hellanicus, Periphron, Megasthenes, Thrasymedes, Ormenius, Diopithes, Mecisteus, Antimachus, Ptolemaeus, Lestorides, Nicomachus, Polypoetes, and Ceraus.

- Despite the text saying there were forty-four suitors from Zacynthos, there are only 41

6.10 - ID1074, Leucus is mortal father of Clisithyra (from 6.9 we can infer that Leucus killed Meda and her daughter Clisithyra, but Meda was married to Idomeneus and can we imply from this that Leucus was matched with Meda out of Nauplius' contrivance to have wives cheat on their husbands? If this is so, then Leucus is not necessarily the father of Clisithyra, it could be Idomeneus. Otherwise Apollodorus might have said "Leucus killed her, with their daughter" instead of "her daughter". Please verify this as well) "character/character/citation"

- ID2522-2524, Aesculapius brings people back to life (Stesichorus in the Eriphyle mentions that Lycurgus was brought back to life as well, and Frazer's footnote #12 says that it is unclear which Lycurgus, but a conjecture of Lycurgus son of Pronax as in 1.9.13 may be the correct one. Ought we to cite Lycurgus (1) in this event?) "event/character/citation"
- ibid, ibid (Hippolytus is also mentioned by the author of the Naupactica, and Frazer's footnote #13 says that after being revived Hippolytus settles on the Alban Hills near Rome.

3.10.4 - Note on character: Aeolus. There are two versions in the database, Aeolus (1) and Aeolus (2), however Aeolus (2) has nothing attributed to him and has no relationships to other characters. Wikipedia entry "Aeolus" mentions there are three possible Aeoluses, the son of Hellen, Poseidon, or Hippotes. Wikipedia footnote #6 cites Apollod. 1.7.3 and states that Perieres was indeed a son of Aeolus, son of Hellen version. Frazer's footnote #4 states that Apollodorus chooses ambiguity in that he says Perieres was a son of Aeolus and a son of Cynortes. Firstly, ought we to remove "Aeolus (2)" from the database, or rather have Aeolus (1) as the son of Hellen, Aeolus (2) as the son of Poseidon, and Aeolus (3) as the son of Hippotes? These are distinguished by Diodorus (see Frazer's cross-reference of Aeolus) and not Apollodorus however. Please check this.

Apollodorus 2.7.6-3

2.7.6 - ID466, Architeles is mortal father of Eunomos (Frazer's footnote says that his name is "variously given as Eunomus, Ennomus, Eurynomus, Archias, Cherias, and Cyathus", if we use Eunomus should we change spelling? Also, text doesn't explicitly name the victim, other than he was a kinsman of Oeneus and son of Architeles) "character/character/citation"
- ID1546-1548, Hercules accidentally kills Eunomos… (ibid., change to "Hercules accidentally kills son of Architeles/Eunomus…"?) "event/character/citation"
- ID564, Nessus ferries Deianira across the river… (place is cited as "Lycormas", but text says "he came to the river Evenus", change to "Evenus"?) "event/place"

- ID1563-1564, Hercules kills Amytor (change spelling to "Amyntor"?) "event/character/citation

- ID1381, Exole is mortal mother of Erythas (text says "Erythras", change?) "character/character/citation"
- Text mentions Hercules bore "by Anthea …", is this also lost or do we know if any other sources mention whom Hercules had with Anthea?
- I just noticed now that there are 2 entries for "Omphale", but they are not named Omphale (1) and Omphale (2) like other characters, should we check this to see if it needs to be done, or are they supposed to be the same Omphale?
- ID1408, Chalciope (2) is mortal mother of Thetallus (text says "Thettalus", change?) "character/character/citation"
2.8
2.8.1 - Text says "the Athenians bore the brunt of war with Eurystheus, and slew his sons, Alexander, Iphimedon, Eurybius, Mentor and Perimedes. Eurystheus himself fled in a chariot…" but the records for character/character/citation state that Hercules is the father of these men. Is Eurystheus the father? It would make more sense in the context of the passage. If so, many of the records under 2.8.1 need to be changed to reflect this.
- Hercules/Eurystheus is mortal father of Mentor (add?) "character/character/citation"

2.8.2 - Text mentions the Heraclids at this point, but they are not a group in the database. Should we create a group of the Heraclids?
- ID1596-1597, The sons of Hercules conquer the Peloponnese… (should we change to "The sons of Hercules, the Heraclids, conquer the Peloponnese…"?) "event/character/citation"
- Add event "The Heraclids quit the Peloponnese and dwell in Marathon", place "Marathon"?

- ID464, ibid "event/place"
- ID458, blank (blank event with character "Thermodon", erase this?) "event/place"

- ID85/499, Hercules' expedition to Ilium (Oicles and Telamon are part of this group, but not Hercules, add?) "group/character/citation"
- Hercules thanks Telamon by giving him Hesione as a prize, does this mean that she is his spouse? Please clarify, also for future references of spoils of war if humans are taken does that make them spouses or slaves, or both? I suppose context will be very important in issues like this.
