Okay, so here's a rather interesting mistake, and the reason why you check your information!

So, in Homeric Greece (heh, I just found a coincidence in my icon...) everyone seems to have kids by multiple people. And because of that, and the fact that Philip of Macedon was the King of Backward, I just assumed that in Homeric Greece they were into polygamy *headdesk*

It's not that bad. I just have a few small things to change; basically, they had a wife, and a few concubines, although it is a little odd that Monoetius had some rather highborn mistresses. Although, I suppose it's a little justified, in that Barsine was highborn too....right?

I am currently a very confused person. At least I got off clean on the lineages--I actually had a family tree made up, which ended up being a rather insane. Although, I had accidently given Patroclus the perfect choice of mother (they weren't sure which woman it was, so I picked the one with the coolest sounding name. A good oops.)

Oh, and in Alexander, I think Ptolemy calls him Maximus Alexandros....but isn't "Maximus" Latin? There's no excuse for that kind of thing...

Hey, was this issue even that noticeable originally? I mean, good thing to correct it and all, but I don't think it would have completely broken up the story to begin with.

He calls Alexander that in the movie? Wow, I must have forgotten. But yeah, that's just wrong... -_-;

Well, I guess it's not that important. Except I'm a perfectionist. *shrugs* Oh well.
