"Apollodorus (Άπολλόδωρυος) also called (born c. 180 BC - died after 143 BC) was..."

He was also called what? --Dax 15:01, 16 November 2006 (CST)

Indeed... Fixed. Ori Redler 10:13, 17 November 2006 (CST)

"...a chronicle in verse of Greek history from the fall of Troy to 144 BC."

To me this does not read right. Am I missing something? To me, "a chronicle in verse of Greek history," sounds like it should read "a brief chronicle of Greek history" or soemthing. Also should you use the word chronicle to to describe his work, Chronicle? Dax 20:22, 17 November 2006 (CST)

It is indeed a chronicle in verse of Greek history (Like: Then Stagadam went in his ships, 200 of those he had, and came to the shores of Athens, the mighty city on the sea...). Even that does not exist in its original form but as citations taken from Philodemus and Stephanus Bizantinus (see here). I've changed "chronicles" to "an account".
