The Curious Incident of the Dogs

Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930), "Silver Blaze," Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes:
"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"

"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."

"The dog did nothing in the night-time."

"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.
Homer, Odyssey 16.4-5 (my translation):
But around Telemachus fawned the always barking dogs,
and did not bark at him as he approached.

Τηλέμαχον δὲ περίσσαινον κύνες ὑλακόμωροι,
οὐδ᾽ ὕλαον προσιόντα.
