Event combining (Catalogue)
Posted by chelsea on 12 Mar 2013 in Documentation
So Greg and I were talking about how we might combine events for Iliad Book 2 (specifically Homer's Catalogue of Ships, versus Apollodorus' account of the catalogue). It seems that we are going to proceed in a way where the event is given a general description that can encompass both Homer's and Apollodorus' descriptions of the event. By adding both Bibl's to the event, and adding a note to each bibl that gives the event more detail, were hoping to keep it to one event while differentiating between the details given by each author (when a difference is noted). For example, Description for an event is "Boeotians send ships to Troy as allies of the Greeks", and under the Iliad bibl, it has a note (that will be visible) that says "Homer states that the Boeotians send 50 ships to Troy" along with the passage we are referencing, and (in the same event) the bibl for Apollodorus includes a note that says "Apollodorus states that the Boeotians send 40 ships to Troy". It may change as we develop it but for now that is how we are proceeding with event combination
