The text in the first bubble is taken from an epigram dating back to Hellenistic times (I think). I've seen it in two different translations and here I've mixed them a bit to get the most readable version.

I want to dedicate a lot of my time to learning about ancient Greece. Not only just because I am fully Greek, but.. well, I actually can't explain my fascination for it. I just love it all. If there's a new little thing for me to learn every other day or so, I am so happy. I feel like this story will give me lots of those little things.

@Maria:
I can't quite explain my fascination for ancient Greece, either. I'm interested in mythologies and ancient cultures in general, but there is something about ancient Greece that stands out (I am a Swede, btw).

I'm happy you think that you will learn things from my comic. ^^

@agnosis: My fascination for it started in Ninth Grade, in English class, when we studied Homer's 'The Iliad'! Back then, my favorite was the goddess of Discord, Eris! ^_^ My love for it grew even more in Tenth Grade, in English class, when we studied the main Greek deities on Mount Olympus! And then, my favorite was the Messenger of the gods, Hermes! :3 And then, once I got a book one Christmas called 'The Gods and Goddesses of Mount Olympus' by Aliki, another favorite was the god of the Sun, Apollo! ^_^ Greek/Roman stuff has always interested to me! :D You can imagine my thrill at seeing the powerful sites in Rome when I visited Europe with my family one Summer! XD

@MegaLisa830: Oh, that must have been so exciting! I recently came home from a trip to Athens, and it was really awesome to see the Acropolis with my own eyes and visit the other archaeological sites in the area. :)
