Sadly, this is the University of Nebraska Lincoln, Professor Tom Winter, who once wrote an article which reads, in part, “The bow, among the Greeks, was the principal weapon for the city besieged. The bow being so effective in this situation explains why the an [sic] early advance in ancient siege machinery was the movable tower. It is an anti-gravity machine! Its purpose was to zero out the gravity advantage of arrows from heights!” and now I want to take a million classes with him and talk to him about math and Xenophon and really terrible jokes, WOW.
“Though siege-towers and other siege-works were constructed out of range, the range of an arrow from the height of a city wall could always be surprising. One instance is Philip 11, king of Macedon (359-336 BC) and father of Alexander the Great. He was besieging Methone in 354 when he got his most famous wound: an arrow from the city walls knocked an eye out (Diod. 16.34). He survived, disfigured. Had he known the ratio of height to range, he would, presumably, have been standing farther away.”
Oh my god, Skateboarding Professor
