“Look for the copper tablet-box,
Undo its bronze lock,
Open the door to its secret,
Lift out the lapis lazuli tablet and read it,
The story of that man, Gilgamesh, who went through all kinds of sufferings.”
Stephanie Dalley, Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, the Flood, Gilgamesh, and Others

“The daughter of Sin was determined to go
To the dark house, dwelling of Erkalla's god,
To the house which those who enter cannot leave,
On the road where travelling is one-way only,
To the house where those who enter are deprived of light,
Where dust is their food, clay their bread.
They see no light, they dwell in darkness,
They are clothed like birds, with feathers.”
Stephanie Dalley, Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, the Flood, Gilgamesh, and Others

“In some strata of Greek and Roman society the engineer was actually denigrated, higher esteem being accorded to poets, playwrights and sculptors. According to Plutarch, Archimedes was praised for refusing to contaminate his theoretical and mathematical science with practical applications, although under extreme pressure at the siege of Syracuse in Sicily he did design practical machinery.”
Stephanie Dalley, The Mystery of the Hanging Garden of Babylon: An Elusive World Wonder Traced
