Yup, it is called a coincidence. Happens all the time, actually.

This is the spookiest comic ever. I've been listening to an Introduction to Ancient Greek History, and the very morning this comic was published, the lecture covered the Delphic oracle, and particularly the prediction that if Croesus crossed the river, a great empire would fall. Weird stuff going on in the cosmotic synchronia just now.

Well, one man's Mede is another man's Persian.

I am all in favor of not splitting hairs over historical accuracy in a comic, but you know, that seems like something Zach should have gotten right.

Good comic, and always like to see antiquity get some love, but one nit to pick: Croesus was king of Lydia--i.e., not Greek.

I'm happy you made this thread.

It means my comic discussion threads are no longer the worst on the site.
