Homer on stone

A sarcophagus discovered by construction workers in Cyprus last week bears images based on the Iliad and the Odyssey.

No word yet on whether Homer intends to sue for copyright violation.

(Joking aside, the article says the images are much brighter than those on similar sarcophagi displayed in the Met and the British Museum, which is way cool. Don’t you just love this stuff?)
