Quandary Resolution 2672
apastron, turtle, panegyric, simpatico
The story of the Great Turtle (that astronomical constellation which appears to "turn over" when its stars are at apastron) was first related in a panegyric of Simpaticos, the Greek fabulist from whose congenial and agreeable nature we also derive our word "simpatico."
