Attention

Under the advice of Greg, for the sake of clarity in PAUS 2.32.10, I have removed the term brackets from the Greek terms about olives. It may be helpful later to find some coding that will highlight these terms without ommitting them from the sentence. I have done the same for cosmosandalon in 2.35.5.

Marking up PAUS 2, I created SARO2, SPHA2, HERM8, and PHOE10. I also fixed ASTY11, LACE2, and SCAE1's descriptions to work and added to my lists of new people/places/orgs to add. I worked up to PAUS 2.34.4 Greg: I would like to figure out where Methana is.

I worked in Pausanias 2 and created the people AETI1, ARDA1, ASTE11, ANAX7, TROE3, ANAP2, HYTA1, SPHE2, and SARO1. And I made the places HALI9, HYPE22, and MYND1 and the organization ANAX6. I also did a fair bit of jumping around to mark up each time something was mentioned in the PAUS text like MUSE1, HYPN1, etc. I worked up to PAUS 2.31.6.

We updated the site today and I kept marking up Pausanias 2. I created ANAX6, ORUS2, LEIS1, ALTH3, CHRY15, and APHA3 and edited the description of PYTH1. It took a while to sort out EUBU2 and CARM1's family tree so I ended up creating CARM1 and CARM2 to fix it. I worked up to PAUS 2.30.7.

Today I continued working through PAUS 2 and adding characters like ANTO3, MELI10, and TELE18 when necessary and sure that they are not duplicates of other characters and then I add in all the relationships that I can find. I also fixed a mistake in the xml for CYPS1 and edited the descriptions of PATR6, CIMO1, and CIMO2. I am not sure which Evagoras is in 2.29.4 so I have sent Dr. Bowman an email. I worked up to PAUS 2.29.4 and will keep working on it next day.

For the past week the majority of my work has been in Places. This entails creating new places in Oxygen, finding them in Pleiades and establishing geo-coordinates for them with the vertex. This work has been done through working my way through the PausErrors sheet that Jas has created, which is mainly a list of places that needs to be created. I am currently in C's with A's and B's finally complete.

Today I continued editing and marking up Pausanias 2. I created PITY2, PAUS3, EPIO1, ARES3, and (orgs)DORI6 and ARIC1. I also included ISCH1 as a son of ELAT1 because I read online that Ischys is the brother of Polyphemus which we had attributed to the man known as ELAT1 but please update it if you come across contradictory information. I also added to my lists and worked up to 2.27.6.

I continued through the PAUS text and updated a few old Attention blog posts along the way. I edited the PAUS text and added to the spelling errors post, and also created EURY62, ORNE2, PROE4, MAER1, and LYRC1. I marked up to PAUS 2.25.10 (start next day with Lessa).

I continued marking up the PAUS text, adding alias' or minor description edits along the way, and adding new persons and places that need to be created or need pleiades links to the respective lists. I created the organisation MELA21, the people SPHY1 and LARI2, and events 9431 and 9432. I worked up to PAUS 2.24.2.

Pausanias Text

In the first sentence of PAUS 2.23.5 I came across the word "Sicyorians"; however, because Pausanias refers to the Sicyonians repeatedly before and after I thought that it was possibly a spelling mistake. Greg and I found another translation through the Open Library (page 371) by WHS Jones which does not have the spelling variation so we feel confidant that the substitution of an "n" for an "r" was a mistake when copying the texts for web use and have fixed it. Similarly, I used the open library link to WH Jones' translation as evidence that at some point our text was changed from "Tegea" to "Teges" and have since fixed it. And again I have looked at Jones' work to show that "Omeae" in 2.25.5 should be "Orneae" and changed it. And I changed "Anaxibi" and (family of. Aeacus" to "Anaxibia" and "(family of Aeacus)" in 2.29.4. And "alter" to "after" in 2.30.3. And "Pantinus" to "Pontinus" and "Amymane" to "Amymone" in 2.27.1. Block quotes also need different formatting in order to differentiate between the quote and Pausaias' writing as seen in 2.3.4, 2.26.7, and 2.16.10.
