Quandary Resolution 2612
dauphin, even Homer nods, osculate, bivouac
Bivouacked at Faucigny, Guigues VII, Dauphin of Viennois and Count of Albon, reclined in his pavilion, osculating Beatrice of Savoy and reading *The Iliad,* when at length he perceived a grammatical error in the text, and wryly quipped, "Even Homer nods"--unaware that at that very moment, thirty Savoyard soldiers were creeping out of an enormous wooden badger and stealing into his camp.
