I only went back to have a look at the Antikythera mechanism!
I'm wearing one of these, is it not a toga?
Oh my dear! I fear what you are wearing seems to be a chiton
, shorter than a toga and more usually worn by young men
! Perhaps I could help you find a stola
And please accept my apologies for my long absence. In the course of my peregrinations I became somewhat embroiled in a plot to assassinate King James in England in 1611. It seems that those wicked men put to death for their complicity in the Gunpowder Plot were not the last conspirators and I seized a few moments here to see if anyone might be able to help prevent a second attempt employing a marine artillery piece directed at the royal coach? His majesty is more anxious than ever since the assassination of Henry IV of France.
