520    The extraordinary story of the breaking of an Ancient 
       Greek code Homer is renowned as the finest of the 
       storytellers who for countless generations passed down by 
       word of mouth the myths and legends of Ancient Greece. Yet,
       for some 2,500 years, there have been persistent folk 
       memories that his genius extended far beyond literature 
       and that scientific knowledge was hidden in his stories of
       heroes, villains, gods, ghosts, monsters, and witches. 
       Research now reveals that at a time when the Greeks did 
       not have a written script, Homer concealed an astonishing 
       range of learning about calendar making and cycles of the 
       sun, moon, and planet Venus in the Odyssey, his epic of 
       the Fall of Troy and the adventures of the warrior-king 
       Odysseus.
