  • Greek fire existed, but those 3 images may be modern guesses or hoaxes. Please quote ancient author references. There are some images in page Greek fire Anthony Appleyard (talk) 21:28, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
"....but those 3 images may be modern guesses or hoaxes." they are not "modern" guesses or hoaxes they are from a nowadays experiment in Greece to see how ancient stuff worked and afterwards were placed to the archaeological museum

A "nowadays experiment" is exactly a modern guess. Unless we have reliable sources to say exactly what the ancients had all we have is a modern guess. Meters (talk) 20:01, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
