I will gladly add my congratulations to Stephen. I've been reading his contributions to B-Greek, both list and forum, since back in the early 1990's, was fascinated with the lawyer's and scholar's take on the "Secret Mark" forgery, have watched his blog, "Hypotyposeis" with great interest since he began it (who else would swipe the title of the work of Clement of Alexandria?), was happy finally to meet him in person a few years ago. I'll be very interested to see where the next step will take him. Cheers, Stephen!
οὔτοι ἀπ’ ἀρχῆς πάντα θεοὶ θνητοῖς ὑπέδειξαν,
ἀλλὰ χρόνῳ ζητέοντες ἐφευρίσκουσιν ἄμεινον. (Xenophanes, Fragment 16)
