πᾶ (ποῦ)

Archimedes is said to have said,

δός μοι πᾶ(ποῦ) στῶ καὶ τὰν γᾶν κινάσω.

Arateia Notia

I was about to chime in on this whole little-endian/big-endian question on your other poem; thanks for clarifying that. I've run into this before, probably because I'm running a Power PC Mac, and they chose to make the PPC chip use the opposite format from everybody else, so if anybody's in the same boat, check out the "gender" of your numbers!

On a positive note, UTF-8 with
Lucida Grande displays this poem beautifully on my ...
