codes?!? in homer's and tragedians' intros

this sounds bizarre, and i don't find co-incidental patterns interesting, but i haven't heard about this before and i'm wondering if anyone here has heard about this and whether it's been generally approved/rejected:

i'm just reading The Homer of Aristotle by D Margoliuoth, Oxford 1923 who says that there was a practice of all Greek tragedians, mentioned in Diogenes Laertius, of inserting cryptic signatures in the tragedies to prove their authenticity. It then sets out ...

People who annoy me....

I just thought I'd start a semi-flaming thread about people who bug me!

The first and foremost on this list are people who become members here at Textkit, merely to post about political/religious reasons and have no desire to learn, and (presumably) no capacity for Greek or Latin.....People who merely want to take the opportunity to try and "indoctrinate" us with their profound wisdom and insight. Which leads me to my second type of people ...

Pleased to be here

I go by Desdinova or Los Christabel. My interests are writing and linguistics. My goals are conversational and Liturgical Latin. Actually right now, I can't think of much to say about myself.

Please be nice to me. I'm a nOOb (here, at least) I hope never to misuse the subjunctive. :D

Is Benner the one that ...
