Quandary Resolution 2611
dauphin, even Homer nods, osculate, bivouac
At a bivouac outside Carthage, the legionnaires swarmed the first Roman emperor Augustus, Julius Caesar's dauphin, but when I among them tried to osculate his ring, he recoiled in horror, observing that that Roman Catholic tradition had not yet been invented, to which I said impishly 'even Homer nods', a mention of the Greek author which further provoked his chauvinistic wrath.
