Greek Division

After adding the footnote from the May 30 message, and a couple new pictures, I decided to divide my webpage on classical Greece into two parts.  For a while it was obvious to me that the page had exceeded the 120 KB limit on text alone; anything larger than that is a challenge for search engine “spiders” to index effectively.  Here is how the page will be organized from now on:
