An amusing poem in ancient Greek in the Red Lion Visitor book

A former Sherborne School pupil, James Kierstead, winner of the Marson Greek Prize, and now a Lecturer in Classics at the Victoria University of Wellington, N.Z., has written an article in The Shirburnian about this poem in ancient Greek, remarkably composed and written by a Sherborne pupil in the Visitor's Book at the Red Lion during his overnight stay in 1889!

Rachel Hassall, Sherborne School Archivist, very kindly sent the Red Lion a link to the article: http://oldshirburnian.org.uk/a-plea-to-keep-classical-greek-on-the-schoo...
