Professor David Whitehead writes:
The pun is terrible but the piece, as always, a delight -- so excuse me if I seize upon one small point. Your readers will think you are saying that Aeneas Tacticus himself had the Themiscyra incident in mind. That cannot be, as he was writing in the mid 4th century BC (when already, therefore, such use of 'wasps and bees' had occurred).
If I may paraphrase Holley Bishop:
Every day I am humbled, educated, and inspired to learn and know more, and every day I realize how much I don't know.
