Homer and Sappho

Why is it that it's spring break, and I still feel like I don't have time? Such is life.

Anyway, I assume everyone and their mother has already heard about the sarcophagus with Homeric scenes. Although, it does bug me a lot that they use "Ulysses" rather than "Odysseus." Are people not equally as familiar with the Greek name? Do people not know what an odyssey is? (Don't answer that; I'm afraid to know the truth!)

Also, thanks to Alun of archaeoastronomy for letting me know about this program on Sappho. I haven't had a chance to listen to it myself, but I'll take anything on Sappho!
