  2. Milo was a 6 time olympic victor.

  1. Hi Amelia,

    It is great to see that you have posted three such interesting facts about Milo of Croton on your blog. He sounds like a very interesting (and very strong) man. Can you imagine holding up a dangerous roof all by yourself? According to this story Milo saved the philosopher's life and ended up marrying his daughter, Myia. I wonder if he also saved Myia's life when he held the roof up for the family...

    I must admit that I also wonder if Milo really ate 20 lbs of meat, 20 lbs of bread and drank 18 pints of wine in a single day. That seems pretty extreme and unlikely to me. What do you think?

    Cheers, Rachel
