We are now following the name of a mythological character with the phrase "; mythological character" (note that we separate the character's name from the phrase with a semi-colon), which shows up on the Personography table.
Example: King Lud was thought by EM Londoners to be a historical person who founded London. For our purposes, Lud is more like a mythological character in the sense that he was a key figure in London's mythological past. The line between history and mythology is blurry in this period.
Note that we are not marking up references to Greek mythological figures. A reference to Persephone or Scylla and Charybdis would go unmarked.
