worked 4 hours.
Finished editing Pausa 1.11 and other related passages regarding Pyrrhus, Neoptolemus and others. Added # to corresp=" and active=" for the spouses and fathers.
note to self: finish looking up the term in Pausa 1.18
and continue the text starting from Pausa 1.12.1
Changed the last id for the last Pyrrhus in the passage, from PYRR2 to NEOP1.
Why: In the last sentence, it is implied that this Pyrrhus was married to Andromache, who remarried after his death. Pyrrhus (PYRR2) lived more than 15 generation after Andromache. Therefore, the Pyrrhus that is being referred to, would be the Pyrrhus that was live in the same era, Pyrrhus the son of Achilles, otherwise also known as Neoptolemus. Who was the one that made Andromache into his concubine.
Pausa 1.11.3 (1.11.7)
Changed Alexander from ALEX3 to ALEX5. And Neoptolemus from NEOP1 to NEOP2.
Why: In 1.11.3 has the same event described in 1.11.7. Also ALEX3 is Alexander the Great who is the son of Philip II of Macedon and Olympias. Since the sentence, says "Alexander, son of Neoptolemus" means that this Alexander can not be Alexander the Great but is the Alexander who is the brother of Olympias, uncle of Alexander the Great, and son of Neoptolemus (NEOP2).
Created a new id for Alcetas ALCE5, and instead of using ALCE4.
Why: quote from 1.11.1 "father of Neoptolemus and Aryblas was Alcetas, son of Tharypus."
So the id for Alcetas, is ALCE4, he is the father of Neoptolemus (NEOP2) (who is the father of Olympias and Alexander Molossus) and Aryblas/Arybbas (ARYB1).
In 1.11.5 "The Epeirots accepted Alcetas as their king, being the son of Arybbas(ARYB1) and the elder brother of Aeacides (AEAC2)"
This Alcetas can not be the same Alcetas who is the father of Neoptolemus and Arybbas, becuase Arybbas is his father.
Also, Aeacides (AEAC2) is the son of Arybbas (AEAC2). So that means that this Alcetas, as the quote mentions, is the son of Arybbas, the brother of Aeacides, and the grandson of Alcetas(ALCE4).
Changed the Pyrrhus id from PYRR2 to NEOP1.
Why: Neoptolemus is Achilles' son. Refer to above.
Changed the Neoptolemus id from NEOP2 to NEOP1
Why: NEOP2, is the id for Olympias' father, who is also the grandfather of Alexander the Great. While NEOP1 is the id of Achilles' son, who is alive at the time of the Trojan War. Between these two men, are more than 15 generations.
Sources: I draw a family tree, based on Pausa 1.11. And did a quick check on if these individuals existed with Wikipedia. After, checked again if these individuals existed and their family relationships with Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology Vol. 1-3. Edited by William Smith, LL.D., and the Oxford Classical Dictionary, Located in Oxford References, in the online database of the UVIC library. As well as going through the other texts on the site, Homer's Illiad, Apollodorus.
Please note that in the Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology.
Tharypus the father of Alcetas, is also referred to as, Arribas or Arrybas or Arymbas or Tharrytus.
His son Alcetas is referred to as Alcetas I.
Alcetas's son, Aryblas/Arybbas, is also referred to as, Pyrrhus or Arybilus or Arymbas.
worked 3.5 hours
Finished checking family tree.
There is an Alexander which is coded as ALEX3, but I do not believe that it is Alexander the Great, but Paris aka Alexander, as there is references to fighting in Troy. And Alexander the Great didn't fight in Troy.
I haven't changed to tag, as I have not done enough research to confirm my suspicion.

Note to self:
Pausa 1.18.3 term pancratiast is παγκρατιαστής, noun singular masculine nominative. meaning: one who practises the.
Will need to find out more about this term, is it referring to participating in the Pankration. "a sporting event introduced into the Greek Olympic Games in 648 BC and was an empty-hand submission sport with scarcely any rules. The athletes used boxing and wrestling techniques, but also others, such as kicking and holds, locks and chokes on the ground. The only things not acceptable were biting and gouging out the opponent's eyes." -Wikipedia
or was it "a poet or musician, who appears to have been eminent in his art, by the notive of him in Plutarch [...]" -Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology. Edited by William Smith, LL.D. London: Walton and Maberly, upper Gower Street, and Ivy Lane, Paternoster Row: John Murray, Albemarle Street. Volume 3.
is pankration. "in this event *boxing and *wrestling were combined with kicking, strangling, and twisting. It was a dangerous sport, but strict rules were enforced by the umpires. Biting and gouging were forbiddn (expect at Sparta, Philostr. Imag. 348), nearly every manoeuver of hands, feet, and body was permissible. You might kick your opponent in the stomach, twist his foot out of its socket, or break his fingers (cf. Pausanias 6.4, 8. 40. 1-2). All neck holds were allowed, a favourite method being the 'ladder-grip', in whcih you mounted your opponent's back, and wound your legs round his stomach, your arm around his neck." M.
