Plagues and Medea... sorta fitting.

I suppose everyone has already heard about the ancient Athens plague being discovered as typhoid.

The abstract of the paper is here. Thanks to Classics-L again.

And because I have COOL FRIENDS who find COOL THINGS here is a video of Maria Callas as Medea!! It's from Italian newsreel footage, and it's fabulous. Sadly my Italian is barely existent. But... Maria Callas! As Medea! Yay!

Some of my friends still remember when she sang Medea in Texas.
