In the following representation of an email conversation that took place May 6 – June 2, 2018, Natasha Bershadsky, Gregory Nagy, Douglas Frame, and Andrea Debiasi engage in an intergenerational exchange of research, debating the vexed question of the nature of the Lelantine War, working out its connections with the Samian epic The Sack of Oikhalia and with poetic traditions of Homer and Hesiod.

2018.02.14 (formally presented 2018.02.11) | By Gregory Nagy
This posting of 2018.02.14, on Valentine’s Day, marks the third anniversary of Classical Inquiries, which began with a posting that dates from 2015.02.14, Valentine’s Day three years ago. The author of the present posting has received permission from Niloofar Fotouhi, editor-in-chief of TheHollyfest.org, to replicate his contribution to that online publication celebrating the 66th birthday of Olga M. Davidson. The title of that contribution, “What GN owes OMD,” works perfectly for the present context as well, since “GN” owes a Valentine’s Day card to “OMD.” This posting, it is hoped, can serve as such a card, just as the same posting had served as a loving birthday card three days earlier.

This draft of mine is meant as a first step leading toward a more formal declaration shared by the three founding authors of A Homer commentary in progress: Douglas Frame, Leonard Muellner, Gregory Nagy. The signatures for our joint declaration are represented by thumbnail images of the covers for three books of ours centering on Homer. The books are listed below in the Bibliography for my draft, where the URN is indicated for each one of the three books: Frame 2009, Muellner 1996, Nagy 1990.

In his posting of 2016.01.15, Gregory Nagy previewed A concise inventory of Greek etymologies (CIGE), to be edited by me and to be published by the Center for Hellenic Studies (chs.harvard.edu) in the online journal named Classics@, Issue 18. This first preview was followed by another one, by myself, in a posting of 2016.01.31. Both previews included a sample of entries that will feature in CIGE and that were produced by the participants in a micro-seminar “Greek Etymology as Cultural History in the Work of Gregory Nagy” that I taught at the University of Washington in Seattle in the fall of 2015. This posting of 2016.06.10 represents the final installment of etymologies compiled by the seminar students. All future additions to the CIGE will be added directly to Classics@, Issue 18.

The combined research of Nagy and Davidson on ancient “Life of Homer” and medieval “Life of Ferdowsi” narratives respectively has shown that the traditional “biographies” about these two poets, as transmitted by a vast variety of communities, can be studied as sources of historical information about the reception of Homer and Ferdowsi.
