  1. Malo e lelei Seini,

    Thanks for this really interesting and informative post about Milo of Croton. There is a lot of mystery surrounding him but it does sound as though he was a very strong and interesting man. It also sounds like he was an incredible athlete. It is very sad to read that he may have died when his hand became trapped in a tree. Ouch!

    Keep up the great work with your blogging. If possible, can you please tell me where you found these facts? Did you find them on Wikipedia? I am always looking for new sites to explore for my research!

    Thanks, Seini.

    Have a wonderful day,
