The Curious Incident of the Dogs
"Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"Homer, Odyssey 16.4-5 (my translation):
"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
"The dog did nothing in the night-time."
"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.
But around Telemachus fawned the always barking dogs,
and did not bark at him as he approached.
Τηλέμαχον δὲ περίσσαινον κύνες ὑλακόμωροι,
οὐδ᾽ ὕλαον προσιόντα.
