Final Proof of IL BK 14 finished. Fixed some character vs place xml. minors typos. geographical coordinates for Emathia and Pella. Worked 1-4= 3hours
How do we decide which son of Atreus the text is talking about when we mark it up? Ie. Il 14.522. There is no other reference to Menelaus in Bk 14 therefore I think this is referring to Agamemnon. I have left it as Menelaus in the markup for now. Lauren or Dr Bowman please help.

Completed Proofed Il Bk12. some editorial typos(questions in other post). added locations for rivers the broke the achaian wall. removed any geo:0.000 0.000 in bk12 as per Greg. worked 1-330 = 2.5hours
Il bk12.455 changed "tow" to "two" in the line "Then brave Hektor leaped inside with a face as dark as that of fleeing night. The gleaming bronze flashed fiercely about his body and he had tow spears in his hand" based on secondary butler translation.
Il bk12.329: I added a "Y" to "the" to make it "they" in lines: "But if the have too much trouble on their hands to let them come, at any rate let Ajax son of Telamon do so, and let Teucer the famous bowman come with him". -made this decision based on other butler trans. which said "they".
Finished proofing Iliad book 14. 11-1, 2 hours.
