  1. Excellent, Allen. Thomas, a classicist, enjoyed it too. Some of these themes he is covering in his own WEA course this term, on Iconic Women in Greece and Rome!

  2. Very many thanks for your excellent lectures and the excellent standard you afford us. Really keeps the grey matter in tip-top action.
