Still thoroughly annoyed at the *Google employee* I saw yesterday spreading misinformation that there were deprecation announcements for Fusion Tables in 2012 so we had "six years notice".
No, those were deprecation announcements for V1 of the Fusion Tables *API*, which was replaced with V2 of the API—hardly an indicator of Fusion Tables itself being dead or deprecated.

There seems to be only one digitized copy of the 3rd edition of the first volume of J.E. Sandys' "A History of Classical Scholarship" (https://archive.org/details/historyofclassic01sandiala/), but the B/W PDF derivatives are corrupt. So, here's a reprocessed version I made: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xrkr3fg423oysh5/historyofclassic01sandiala_reprocessed.pdf?dl=0
Interesting that Ancient Greek "ἕπομαι" ("follow") has both a physical sense and a sense we still have in English, of "following" an argument.
(This musing brought to you by the end of Plato's Symposium where both senses are used in close sequence: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text?doc=Perseus%3Atext%3A1999.01.0173%3Atext%3DSym.%3Asection%3D223d)

Just learned there's a "headstone graveyard symbol" in Unicode that nobody implements and has no emoji version and therefore it's appropriately enough a GHOST EMOJI https://emojipedia.org/headstone-graveyard-symbol/

Like reading about possibly-forged writing on metal? Then you’ll love this old post of mine about a metal codex in the the Epigraphic Museum of the Baths of Diocletian that might be an 18th century forgery: https://ryanfb.github.io/etc/2015/02/10/a_curious_metal_codex_in_the_baths_of_diocletian.html
