The Virtual Stoa
Ptolemy is supplementing his diet with a piece of bread pinched from the table.
Although it looks like the pinching rather than the eating may have been the point here…
He nibbled at it, but — yes — we threw away the bulk of a stale piece of bread left overnight on the floor this morning.
But he is keen to expand his diet (he regularly finishes bowls of breakfast cereal, licks up the tomato sauce from a plate of baked beans, and is generally interested in what’s on the table). And more generally he’s not very good at observing the distinction between his food and other people’s food: he is currently annoying Andromache by preferring to eat out of her bowl, when he has the choice.
I personally would like to know what to do at the Venice Biennale.
