Elliptical Dance Step

All joy to thee
Daughters of Polyanax.

born ≈ 610 BC
died ≈ 570 BC

Blogger's Notes
Polyanax ruled the kingdom of Melos. None of his troops were sent to the Trojan War.
Sappho died approximately the same year Pythagoras was born. He ruled the kingdom of Mathematics but as a dance teacher, she taught a beautiful form of Applied Math.
A full-length Sappho poem appears here
