Sites where Minoan pottery has been found outside of Crete?
I only accounted for countries that have their own means to get something into space.
Not about the Minoans either.
Places in Greece not even Greeks care about? (Yes, I'm looking at you, Attica)
Could have been, but unfortunately Asia Minor in not yet back in Greece
Ok, some more clues:
It is about famous people who are linked somehow.
Really, you should be able to find it now. You would have if you had bothered to check some map of ancient Greece, or at least would have more clues by then
There is Sparta on that map
It is about famous people, one from each of the states colored. They are somehow linked.
These people were all students of Aristotle or generals of Alexander.
No, it is from an age before Aristotle, Plato and Socrates. They are roughly of the same era. The last of them died around 120 years before the start of the Peloponnesian war
That would be the age of the Greek tyrants, right? Solon and the rest? This is probably the sort of thing that only Dachs would get.
Actually it is not about tyrants, but Solon is indeed one of them
Quick, just google solon and notice what the map is about
Aah. οι επτα σοφοι, the Seven Sages of Greece. I thought that one of the coloured locations was Corinth.
Oh? Sparta was never allied with Athens? I thought they were. Notably against the Persians. Still...
I know they didn't always get on.
What do I know? Very little about classical Greece, I admit.
One of them was from Corinth though, which indeed is one of the regions in color
Cleobulus of Lindos: "Moderation is the best thing." He governed as tyrant of Lindos, in the Greek island of Rhodes, circa 600 BC.
Solon of Athens: "Keep everything with moderation." Solon (c. 638558 BC) was a famous legislator and reformer from Athens, framing the laws which shaped the Athenian democracy.
Chilon of Sparta: "You should not desire the impossible." Chilon was a Spartan politician from the 6th century BC, to whom the militarization of Spartan society was attributed.
Bias of Priene: "Most men are bad." Bias was a politician and legislator of the 6th century BC.
Thales of Miletus: (c. 624 BC c. 546 BC) Thales is the first well-known philosopher and mathematician. His advice, "Know thyself," was engraved on the front façade of the Oracle of Apollo in Delphi.
Pittacus of Mytilene (c. 640568 BC), governed Mytilene (Lesbos) along with Myrsilus. He tried to reduce the power of the nobility and was able to govern with the support of the popular classes, whom he favoured. He famously said "You should know which opportunities to choose."
Periander of Corinth (fl. 627 BC): he was the tyrant of Corinth in the 7th and 6th centuries BC. During his rule, Corinth knew a golden age of unprecedented stability. He was known saying "Be farsighted with everything."
So, three were explicitly tyrants and three others were legislators as well. I wasn't too far off anyway.
I believe tat in that website they're spelling 'Viro' wrong.
Nonononono, no. It. Is. Spartē!
*facepalm emote* I've been reading on the Seven Sages of Greece, and while i'm offline someone decides to start a new map and it is solved before I rejoin the Matrix Internet.
Given that I was spitting out the few bits of Classical Greek history that I could even partially remember, do feel free to take the map then, Takhisis.
Nah, you take it.
Well since no one posted anything in two days, i guess i could (again) supply a map...
This is a bit tricky, although it still might be solved quite quickly
Has to do with history btw.
Celts? Viking travelers?
Separate names with a comma.
