What the heck is an aerophagus [aeropagus in article] (?)
Areopagus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

From the Wiki article said:
This article concerns the place where a classical judicial body met. It is also the term for the judicial body which met there. For the 16th century literary movement, see Areopagus (poetry). For the regional government during the Greek War of Independence, see Areopagus of Eastern Continental Greece. For the modern Greek Supreme Court, see Court of Cassation (Greece).

The Areopagus as viewed from the Acropolis.
Engraved plaque containing Apostle Paul's Areopagus sermon.The Areopagus (Romanized to "Mars' hill") is the composite form of the Greek name Areios Pagos, translated "Ares Rock" (Ancient Greek: Ἄρειος Πάγος).[1] It is north-west of the Acropolis in Athens. In classical times, it functioned as the high Court of Appeal for criminal and civil cases[2] Ares was supposed to have been tried here by the gods for the murder of Poseidon's son Alirrothios (a typical example of an aetiological myth).
Now if only I knew what an aetiological was ....... :rolleyes:

I'm going to link this over at the WaPo for all my "progressive" homies.

Maybe I can get banned again.
