Glad you liked it; I had fun writing it and (re) learned some stuff on the puzzle's theme in the process.

That wasn't intentional I experienced a sploofus quake trying to post the message (it wasn't sending so I hit send multiple times) Oops

Great puzzle - stumbled on a couple of easy words. Tense of one little verb was one problem

Not enough hurt for a visit to the psi-chi-atrist.

Good puzzle, I love anything based on greek myths. When the puzzle is over, could we have all the phrases with the clues?
Many thanks

Great challenging puzzle, Barry. I went down to the wire on time but enjoyed relearning Greek myths.

Good one, Barry. We have figured out that you just like words with lots o different letters and can do your WPs better because of that knowledge.

Thanks.

But....it's all Greek to me.
