Short one today for Words Crush Wednesday, as my final paper is due today at 5pm. (Of course, I’m pre-writing this on Sunday, but…)
Came across this in Suetonius, and couldn’t help chuckling.
His baldness was a disfigurement which his enemies harped upon, much to his exasperation, but he used to comb the thin strands of hair forward from the crown of his head, [Suetonius, Divus Julius 45, Robert Graves translation]
The question is, did it look as stupid as modern comb-overs?
