Coleoptera

Coleoptera – Dal greco κολεόπτερος, koleópteros, da κολεός, koleós, guaina, e πτερόν, pterón, ala. I Coleotteri (Coleoptera Linnaeus, 1758) sono un ordine di insetti che, con 350.000 specie raggruppate in 20 superfamiglie e 166 famiglie, costituiscono il più grande ordine tra tutti gli organismi viventi sul pianeta, vegetali compresi. Il nome koleópteros fu coniato da Aristotele. Le ali anteriori di questi insetti, dette elitre, sono fortemente sclerificate e quindi non svolgono più la funzione del volo ma proteggono le ali posteriori e l'addome.

Coleoptera – From Greek κολεόπτερος, koleópteros, from κολεός, koleós, sheath, and πτερόν, pterón, wing. The Coleoptera order of insects is commonly called beetles. Most beetles have two pairs of wings: the front pair, the elytra, being hardened and thickened into a sheath-like, or shell-like, are protection for the rear pair, and for the rear part of the beetle's body.

Oidipódës = Edipo è un eroe della mitologia greca. Figlio del re di Tebe Laio e di Giocasta, fu condannato dal padre a morire appena nato, perché un oracolo minacciava da quel figlio orrendi mali. Salvato da un pastore e portato nella Focide, fu allevato e creduto figlio del re Strofio. Recatosi un giorno a Delfi, durante il cammino vi uccise in una rissa uno sconosciuto (Laio). A Tebe sciolse l'enigma della Sfinge e liberò il paese dalla sua persecuzione, per cui fu fatto re e sposò la regina vedova, Giocasta (dal matrimonio incestuoso nacquero Eteocle, Polinice, Antigone e Ismene). – Oedipus was a mythical Greek king of Thebes. A tragic hero in Greek mythology, Oedipus fulfilled a prophecy that said he would kill his father, and thereby bring disaster on his city and family. The story of Oedipus is the subject of Sophocles's tragedy Oedipus the King, which was followed by Oedipus at Colonus and then Antigone. Together, these plays make up Sophocles's three Theban plays. Oedipus represents two enduring themes of Greek myth and drama: the flawed nature of humanity and an individual's role in the course of destiny in a harsh universe.
