Here’s an interesting question for the lizards out there. When Odysseus returns home again, he meets and teams up with a swineherd, whom Homer lauds in the most insanely over-the-top manner.

Do you think that the withdrawal of the gods from the Classical world necessarily leads to a greater kinship between people and swine, and kingship and swineherding? Inquiring Straussians want to know!
