I’m still working away on the Mithras site. This week I’ve been dealing with the find of statues and inscriptions at Merida in 1902-3, when a bull ring was constructed. No archaeological investigation was undertaken, and details are very hazy.
Meanwhile I have discovered some time-consuming problems with the footnotes in the Origen book, in the section devoted to the Greek fragments. Whenever the text goes into two columns the footnote numbering in the text goes wrong.
This is fiddly and I need to give a very specific list of corrections to the typesetter. But I have no time! Not enough hours in the day!
So … too busy to blog!
UPDATE: I wrote that post through the WordPress Android app. Well that was a disaster, wasn’t it? And posted twice for good measure.
