Boris Johnson's Ten Greatest Ancient Greeks
Boris Johnson -- his full name is Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson -- is the Lord Mayor of London. In addition to being something of a character, he also happens to be a classicist, and he's fluent in Latin and Greek. It's such a rare thing to have a successful politician who knows anything about history, let alone someone who's an expert, that I thought this might be interesting. He's written this article for the Daily Mail, in which he lists his Ten Greatest Ancient Greeks, complete with quotes in the original language. Kudos too to the Daily Mail, for printing an article on ancient literature; something that would probably be anathema to most newspapers these days.
