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!
