Happy First 20th of the New Year!!

  • All the best on this first 20th of the New Year!!

    And a momentous one it is. Epicurus's birthday according to the ancient Greek calendar starts at sundown today! I'm not a mathematician so I don't know how often the 20th in our calendar and 10th of Gamelion coincide... But it can't be that often!

    So, raise a toast of your favorite feasting beverage to EPICURUS (341-271 B.C.), son of Neocles and Chaerestrate, a citizen of Athens of the deme Gargettus, and of the family of the Philaidae.
