Quandary Resolution 478
kebab, stertorously, groundling, iota
At the Groundling Theatre, who was some miles away from trendy restaurants and kebab shops, in one of those nights of the year 2345, when magic shows were presented, and the groundling kept on applauding, only those who gave more than an iota about Hyginus’ Fabulae, murmured stertorously, somehow almost sounding as a strange sotto voce, along with Mr. Itys, the magician, the magic spells, spellbound themselves by the magic transformation of a swallow, a nightingale and a hawk, locked in a big cage, into the well known actors called Progne, Philomela and Tereus, Tereus being Mr. Itys’ father, an old actor known to beguile everyone with seductive words.
