  1. Blaise Szekely

    My mother, Helene Szekely (86 years of age, born in Hungary) was trying to remember some old Greek poem, which lists of seven cities where Homer might have been born in Greece.. Some words she recalls and which I have written (phonetically): hepta poleis…diaridzussi…praridza Homerum…


    Thank you for any help you can give me.
