Quandary Resolution 2883
necrology, chlamys, deleterious, leitmotif
Throwing back the shoulder of his chlamys, the Athenian general Focrates commanded: "Read forth the necrology of the Battle of Onomatopoeia: for I suspect that in so doing, we shall find a recurring leitmotif of death--and death (as you very well know, Senator) can be profoundly deleterious to a nation's health."
