"I Have Given You my Advice" : Educational Principles in the Hittite Empire. OK, you don't give a damn about the Hittite Empire. But there's killer stuff here:
There once was a waiter called Zidi. The father of the king ordered a harhara-cup of wine for Histayara and Maratti, but he, Zidi, served the king good wine and different wine was given to them. Thereupon one of them said to the king: "They did not give me the wine the king saw." Thereupon the other spoke likewise. They took Zidi away, maltreated him and he died.So don't be like Zidi! (Or Mariya, who you'll meet later in the article.) And I know some of you are just dying to make a limerick using the post title. Don't let me stop you.
