From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hi, I'm Modussiccandi. I'm a Latinist in the real world. On Wikipedia, I have written content on classical literature (both Greek and Latin), the history of classical scholarship, European history of the 20th century, women biographies, higher education, association football, and more. Behind the scenes, I'm a reviewer at Articles for Creation and the New Pages Patrol. I also participate regularly at Articles for Deletion. Since 1 February 2022, I have served as an administrator, which means that the community has given me a number of additional tools to aid the maintenance of the encyclopaedia. For an overview of my administrative actions, see this page. My criteria for recall can be found here.

The Defender of the Wiki Barnstar
For Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Philodoppides. (I've already thanked Poimenlaon for the initial spot.) I still remember the mixture of admiration and fury I felt when I uncovered a longstanding well-constructed obscure biographical hoax, and how long it took me to be certain. At least "Bilitis", "Ossian" and "Rowley" wrote some decent poetry.

Out of curiosity, is "doppides" a plausible name element? I have some Latin but no Greek worth speaking of, but it feels wrong to me. Narky Blert (talk) 16:33, 30 August 2023 (UTC)
