Requested cite[edit]

Hi Penitence, in the article Paean (god), you requested at citation for the assertion that the spelling for the epithet of Apollo was "more usually spelled Paean". Please see the cite given at the end of the sentence: Fritz Graf, Apollo pp.66–67, which says (last sentence of 2nd paragraph, p. 66): "The paean's name itself is connected with Paeon, the name of the gods' private physician in Homeric epic and one of Apollo's epithets in later Greece, where it is usually spelled Paean (Paián)".

Sounds good[edit]

Thank you, that's much better. Many of the pages sources refer to Google books links where the pages with the relevant information are not available. Go ahead and move the page back to Paeon and make sure the spelling is consistent, maybe a section for the epithet vs. the individual Homeric god. Just note that the page was moved from Paeon to Paean in 2010. I don't know what the reason for the move was, but it's logged on the page's history. Penitence (talk) 20:36, 19 September 2013 (UTC)
