"Well, all right…so what if it is? I'm not going to name her after some depressing aspect of the Underworld like you do all your pets. I looked up the name Alastor.

16. "In order to get over the ethical difficulties presented by the naive naturalism of many parts of those Scriptures, in the divine authority of which he firmly believed, Philo borrowed from the Stoics (who had been in like straits in respect of Greek mythology), that great Excalibur which they had forged with infinite pains and skill—the method of allegorical interpretation.
