Celebrate Valentine’s Day on Hour 25!
Some say an army of horsemen,
some of footsoldiers, some of ships,
is the fairest thing on the black earth,
but I say it is what one loves.
(Sappho 16, lines 1-4, trans. Julia Dubnoff)

How is kingship depicted and does it reflect the historical situation?
If Nestor is ‘never at fault’ does that affect how we can understand his role in the Odyssey?
