'Why the ancient greeks could not see blue' is very bold and very likely false statement.https://www.greecetravel.com/archaeology/mitsopoulou/blue.htmlhttps://palombacoralli.it/en/turquoise-the-stone-of-a-thousand-myths/

Mceljo, first part.As for the source, you can always try something 'bettter' , with Pathos and than with Krell. I am sure that at one point you will hear the limits of Krell that I am talking about
