  1. This is really cool. Do you do a calendar post like this every month?

    You know, I really love your scholarship. If you could write a post or two about your take on these festivals and holidays, that would be awesome.

    Thank you very much!!
    Yes, I publish the calendar every month, and I am translating (from italian language) all that is actually known about these festivals, how to celebrate them according to the original sources, etc. For this month, I hope to prepare an article about the agones and honors during the Eleusinia, so…stay tuned! Thanks again for your comment!
