Behind the scenes
- Mopsus in Greek mythology was a seer and diviner in the court of Amphilochus. He correctly predicted that an upcoming battle would end in great defeat, to the contrary of rival seer Calchas's prediction that it would end in great victory. He later died in a quarrel with Amphilochus over the right to the throne.
