In Nonnos Paraphrasis, Chapter 19, lines 9-11, Nonnos speaks of the mantle
the soldiers threw over Jesus, (John 19:2) and uses the phrase:
kai min anechlaino^san epi chroi pepla balontes
Sidonie^s stilbonta sopho^ spinther^ri thalasse^s,
sumbola koiranie^s kai en algesin...
does the phrase "a spark from the Sidonian sea" or does any of this bring any
associations to mind? What would it mean in this context?
All Nonnos All Day
