Hi, Susan

. . . Quite right about lots of information contained within the text. It's a situation where one brings along what I call the requisites - A dictionary, Thesaurus, translator, and Encyclopedia set suited for many references for starters.

. . . If it’s the same book I have, it might be by Edith Hall, “Introducing the Ancient Greeks: From Bronze Age Seafarers to Navigators of the Western Mind.” . . Edith Hall has several publications. Excellent narration, actually, wish there were more like it on my favourite topics.

At any rate, some of the first chores for any relocation strategy for an intergenerational congregation such as this group were to find food, water, and a means of safety / shelter – sort of, standard operating procedures. Some sources, regarding the new Theraeans or Therans to the Libyan coast, suggest that there was a prior relationship and that the local Libyan inhabitants shared resources with the Greek colonizers. One of the things that contributed toward that settlement was a spring fed water source around which a city called Cyrene was built. . . A couple links follow that briefly shed some light on a timeline about Cyrene and Thera:: :
