Quotation of the Day

Pat Southern, English Historian

“It is firmly embedded in popular imagination, and reinforced by novels and films, that the rowers of galleys were slaves, but this is erroneous.  (Superlative film though it is, and eleven Oscars notwithstanding, Ben Hur has led people astray). “― Augustus, © Pat Southern, Published by Routledge, London and New York, Page 83.
