Cephalos, Ward of Eleusis, is a five-book volume of translations of the Archival Chronicles of Mentör, son of Alkimos (born in 1285 BC). An artist at the contemporary writ by syllabaries, his composed literary style of protohistory renders the earliest Greek regions as first known and termed in accordance with their royal dynasties. We must accept the serial challenge that the Chronicles require through our immersion in Mentör’s late-age mastery. By it our reward, a meld of the historicity inherent in Early Greek Mythology, along with copious discoveries since affirmed by legacy scholars off the digs. Thereby, S. W. Bardot plagiarizes unabashedly with his delivery to us of a robust Late Aegean Bronze Age. A Homeric scholar of expertise in Greek cultural anthropology, Bardot adapts his mastery to Oldest Greek through the Linear B decodings of the Bardot Group. His is the conceit of its own legacy scholars, conservators of whole repositories of syllabic script decoded from 1960 to 1986. It and much earlier scholarly colloquia of antiquity have brought forth Mentör and his own most personal sources of writ, by both dictation and real recitals in overview of the most famous Greeks living during the Late Helladic Period IIIA1.
The Consort Prince of Magnesia, the third book in the series, picks up in Cephalos’ mid- to late teenage years, as he is establishing a coherent war navy and pursing maritime objectives for Attica. An invitation to court from the Princess of Magnesia can win him further naval advancements if he can outlast more mature rivals at feats of horse and chariot, dueling, and other physical ordeals.
