This is my first blog post for the winter learning journey. Since the theme is Olympics here are three interesting facts about Milo of Kroton.
1. One story tells of the wrestler saving the philosopher's life when a roof was about to collapse upon him and another that Milo may have married the philosopher's daughter Myia.
2. The date of Milo's death is unknown, but he reportedly was attempting to tear a tree apart when his hands became trapped in a crevice in its trunk, and a pack of wolves surprised and devoured him.
3. Milo was the subject of fantastic tales of strength and power, some, perhaps, based upon misinterpretations of his statues.
