Neoptolemos and Andromache[edit]

Thanks for trying to make things consistent, but the fragment describing Neoptolemos taking Andromache and killing Astyanax is definitely from the Little Iliad. I agree it's puzzling but it's rock solid: see fragment 14 in Evelyn-White's edition. Dammit, I'd better provide a reference for that from a current edition when I get back to my office on Thursday, unless someone has a Bernabe/Davies/West reference to hand -- the Iliou persis article has had an error related to this fragment introduced to it again (which may have led Wetman astray).
