This is the start of a list of XPath expressions that will help you find stuff in the MoM dataset.
* To find all the places that do NOT have a Pleiades link, open PLAC1.xml and put this in the 'XPath 2.0' box at the top left of the oXygen editor:
//place/placeName[not(@type="aka") and not(@ref)]
When a new roman name shows up in a text it will likely be their cognomen. Ex: Gaius Julius Caesar, would be Caesar. When you create the tag use the cognomen so this case would be CAES1. When you write the persName use the most common name the person is known by. So this case it would be Julius Caesar. If you don't know then simply use the nomen and the cognomen. In all case make sure to put their full name as an "aka".
I'm quite sure that Tyndareus (TYND1 and TYND2) are the same person. Tynd 1 is described as the Spartan king. His son should be Castor, the argonaut and the brother of Pollux, however Castor is marked as the son of Tynd 2. This piece of information, along with the lack of reference to there being two Tyndareus' leads me to believe they should be the same person. I will confirm this with Dr. Bowman.
I got 17 Schematron errors.

Description: The @ref '' does not match the xml:id of an existing place.

It should be corresp=# not ref=mom as it is referring to an ID that is located in the same file.
