Source Notes

The original source notes said: Wemyss No.167 "Born on the 6th Thargelion in the 4th year of the 77th Olympiad, from Standley's History of Philosophy, equated with May 20, 467 OS."

(Penfield Collection has the same date, cast for Noon. Blackwell writes, "Historians debate his actual existance.")
