The word "δαίμων" appears in Iliad 5.431, and is tagged as term. Because of this, the sentence in the reader is missing a noun: "When he was coming on for the fourth time, equal to a."
I have added in "Daimon" is Butler wrote it in his translation. If this convention is to be followed, we'll probably need a tag for this demigod type word.
We spoke at various points about creating a list of mythical half living potentially magical objects that seem to have agency or power in some odd way:
I think this post might refer to the same thinf -- http://hcmc.uvic.ca/blogs/index.php?blog=45&p=9810&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1Well, I've another one. Iliad 5.416 - "Ichor"
When adding events to events.xml you'll need to browse the existing events to make sure you aren't adding a duplicate. Here are a couple of special searches you can use to look through the events file a bit more rapidly:
1) If you want to find all events that take place in, say, Crete, you can run an XPath search (there's a search field at the top-left of oXygen) to do it. That search looks like this:
Paste the above line in its entirety in to the XPath search field and hit 'Enter'.
To search for another place, change crete to the xml:id of the place you want to find - leave the quotes alone!
2) Something similar can be done for characters:
Again, paste the above line in to the XPath search field and hit 'Enter'
3) You can combine this functionality, too. To find all events which include Eurystheus and Mycenae, try this:
//event[(.//persName[@corresp='characters.xml#eurystheus']) and (.//placeName[@corresp='places.xml#mycenae'])]
That's all one line, and it goes in that XPath field.
Could someone take on the task of sorting out Heaven and Mount Olympus?
They are, as far as I can tell, interchangeable but this needs to be confirmed. If it is confirmed, we need to resolve all of the texts and events to reflect the change.
The problem is illustrated by going to Pausanias Desc 1.29.11 and clicking on Heaven, look at the citations that come up: all Pausanius. However, there are events associated with it that take place in heaven, but there's no mark up for, say, Apol. 1.6.3 that distinguishes heaven.
Spent all day fighting this, but I now have polygons working. To experience it for yourself, click through to the map, click on Peloponnese - BAM! Polygon.
While doing that I also ripped off an OpenLayers applet for creating polygons:
Now we can begin to create regional outlines for other areas, like Boeotia and Arcadia and so forth. There's a handy Wikipedia article on this precise topic here:
This project will focus on deploying an interactive map of Europe with overlays for Greek and Roman myths, history, people and events. Development URL: http://tomcat-devel.hcmc.uvic.ca:8080/myths/apps/mom
