Did the kings of Sparta commission texts to be written down by scribes?
CitationNagy, Gregory. 2020.01.31. "Did the kings of Sparta commission texts to be written down by scribes?" Classical Inquiries. http://nrs.harvard.edu/urn-3:hul.eresource:Classical_Inquiries.
AbstractMy brief comments here connect with what I noted in the previous posting, Classical Inquiries 2020.01.24, about scribal exchanges of letters between Polycrates, tyrant of Samos, and Amasis, pharaoh of Egypt. Here I explore further examples of such scribal activity, this time involving the dual kings of Sparta.
