This is my blog for posting material of academic interest (to me). Expect to see stuff about Greek and Roman history, archaeology, Classical literature, the Ancient Near East, historical films, teaching, the reception of the Classics in science fiction, the abuse of history, science fiction criticism, and occasionally other historical stuff, or just things that I'm interested in. Expect spoilers at all times.

New paper out on Ptolemy XII
I have a chapter in Our Beloved Polites: Studies Presented to P.J. Rhodes, edited by Delfim Leão, Daniela Ferreira, Nuno Simões Rodrigues, and Rui Morais, a volume in honour of the late Peter Rhodes, which will be published later this month. I wrote about the parentage of Ptolemy XII Auletes. It's the first pure ancient history paper I've written for ages, and it was fun to test out those muscles once again. I am also grateful that I got to express my thanks to Peter before he died.
