In this story, a young man falls hard for the daughter of his host, but she is not what she seems… Tragic and romantic, this story comes from Phlegon of Tralles’ collection of folklore (On Marvels, 1) and is followed by a discussion of women’s lives in the Greek and Roman worlds, and the surprising similarities between this story and the urban legend of the Vanishing Hitchhiker.

‘Sorting’ Out Your Day:

Today on the Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar:

… adapted from the text and translation of:

Jean MacIntosh Turfa, The Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar, in Nancy Thomson de Grummond and Erika Simon (eds.), The Religion of the Etruscans. University of Texas Press, 2006. (Kindle edition)
