See if there is interest for this.

2. Each Quiz runs exactly 24 hours.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.
5. No cash involved. Just glory. :)

I apologize for misspelling of Patroclus's name under 7.


May-23-2006 05:42

Oh, that's okay - my "??" was just to indicate me not knowing the answer even though I did know what you were refering to (it's spelled almost that way in my language as well just with a "k" instead of a "c") - just decided that "??" was faster than having me babble on about trying to remember a what exactly my classical civilization teacher had said when he retold "The Iliad" and not bothering to get off my chair and start reading through the book myself :)

Realizing you could just have put it there as a general note...
Hmm, maybe I should just shut up now and go look in the mirror some more ;p

Was this the fastest solved quiz in the history of Daily Pub? We must think of a special prize for that.
Yes, Greyling, my apology was meant generally , I interpreted your ?? correctly, but please don't shut up, I like learning how the same names are spelt in different languages. In Croatian it's Patroklo, and we also say Helena.
But I checked the spelling with Wikipedia and it categorically told me it was Patroclus although Patrocles sounded fine to me too.
Congratulations to both of you, and now it's your turn, of course after all your cases are done.
