Interesting, but occasional mistakes...

I have enjoyed listening to the first five episodes of this series. I have detected, nevertheless, three major mistakes so far... The first one was when the speaker affirms that "Persia was somewhere in modern Turkey". Unless modern Turkey has expanded overnight to encompass Iran, Persia has always been Iran, and modern Iranians still call themselves Persians to differentiate themselves from Arab Muslims. The second was the notion that Teseus found his way out of the Minotaur's labyrinth "because he left a path of breadcrumbs behind him"... never mind Ariadne's thread, this is a confusion with Hansel & Gretel! The third mistake is just as painful, when it is claimed that Aristotle --not Virgil!--is Dante's guide in the Divine Comedy! All of which makes me believe that this forgetful man still has a lot of original source reading to do.
