This is just a brief post to let you know where my blogging name symposio came from.
Symposium - or symposio as it was called in Greek - originally referred to a drinking party (from the Greek "sympotein" which means to drink together). It was a key Hellenic social institution in ancient times, where men would come together to debate, plot, boast or simply party with others.
So now you know!
