Robert Clear does have a very clear name after all.

And click on this BANNER to go to his Blog where you can find his wonderful story:

five second stories MINOTAUR

You will note that I have added the Mycenaean Linear B Greek & ancient Greek for some of the key words in this wonderful story. What truly amazes me is that Robert translated “Minotaur” correctly, as “mino” = small + “taur” = bull, although the spelling of “mino” in Mycenaean Linear B is usually “meno”, but that is fine with me. If it makes Robert and all of his readers happy, that is all that matters.

So I hope you like it as much as I do.

Also, Robert Clear’s home page is here: Click on the BANNER: 

five second stories

He has plenty more 5 second stories on his home page. His 5 second stories are very funny, and some of them hilarious. My personal favourites are:

A HYENA, a cross between a cat and a dog! (absolutely hilarious! I should get one. I already have 4 cats)
CEDRIC is convinced that everyone thinks he is DULL.

  1. I’m delighted that you like ‘Hero’s Welcome,’ and I love the Linear B additions you’ve made! As it happens I’m a classicist by background (I did my PhD on Pindar’s victory odes). This is such a great website – a real wealth of information.


    1. Hi Robert… Really! What an amazing co-incidence… or perhaps more like serendipity, methinks. A PHD on ¨the odes of Pindar… neat!
      So glad you like our site as much as you do. If you are ever interested in learning Linear B, please let me know. Richard
