zxc Posted December 25, 2015 #451 Share Posted December 25, 2015 It mentions Troy a few times. There is also a reference to Lydia, but Sandbach glosses this as Libya and assumes it refers to North Africa, rather than the historical Lydia in Anatolia, presumably because of the similarity between between the names Lydia and Lyda. I missed the reference to Lydia, I need to read more seriously, so far I have just scanned it quickly. When I first read of Frya, Lyda aand Finda I had a theory that here we had Freya, Leda and Diana but I don't think that really holds up to examination. I currently think every name in the OL is based on someone prominent in mythology, so looking for who and where they mean. 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
