Deipnosophista is an ancient Briton and mad Irishman too often tempted by good living and intellectual exhibitionism.
His main Wiki interests are language(s) and culture(s), ancient and mediaeval history, philosophy and social sciences.
He wrote much of the Constantinople article. But he had a bad experience elsewhere with over-zealous copyright enforcement, and has become less active.
He would like to spend more time translating articles for Vicipaedia, but is too busy with other things.
