  1. Draco schoen!

    I have a suspicion that there must be more to the story, but I’m not sure where to look. The only reason I found this was that it was in-column above another Isidore passage I was looking up.

    What I like best is that, with all the fabulous beast books I’ve read over the years, there’s a quote I’ve never seen sitting right in the middle of one of Western Civ’s major authors. There’s no shortage of niftiness for us all still to encounter.

  2. Serendipity is a wonderful thing. It does make you wonder how much of what we know is purely related to what is commonly read in university courses. Isidore wasn’t, that’s for sure!
