A possible addition to the Fontes Historiae Nubiorum

Today a very interesting seminar took place at the University of Bergen. The speaker was professor of Greek Pär Sandin from the Institute of Linguistic, Literary and Esthetic Studies. He invited the group of Bergen-based researchers of the Classic past to discuss some philological remarks he had to make on a fragment of Aeschylos, 300 TrGF. The fragment refers to the reasons for the flood of the River Nile that had fascinated deeply the ancient Greeks; and it is one of these cases of texts that had not found their way to the Fontes Historiae Nubiorum, but that can surely be part of a revisiting of the sources on Ancient Sudan. It is of course a happy coincidence that the opportunity to refer to such an addition is given thanks to work conducted in the metropolis of the FHN and my academic base. For more details on the text of the original fragment and its translation, see: http://www.uib.no/fg/tradisjon/97678/aischylos-fragment-300-trgf
