Homer, Iliad 24.369

Almost ALL of the gods Homer mentioned appear on the Linear B tablets found at Knossos, Mycenae, Pylos and other such sites. Co-incidence? I think not.


“Be wary of a man who gets angry before anything happens.”

ἄνδρ’ ἀπαμύνασθαι, ὅτε τις πρότερος χαλεπήνῃ.

So says Hermes as he guides Priam to see Achilles…

(Yes, some liberties were taken with this one. According to Suetonius, this is a line the Emperor Claudius quoted…)
