The conversation between Thessaly and Fetch is reminiscent of Willingham’s Snow White and Prince Charming, with the somewhat goofy Fetch presenting his wild and crazy scheme to the ruthlessly practical Thessaly.
Thessaly, with her big round glasses and librarian looks, never looked like a millennia-old witch who’d kill a god if it were in her best interests, and McManus has made her look even more harmless here.
Thessaly seems more "real" than her supporting cast: Like Fetch, the Italian townspeople have a more cartoonish quality to them, while Thessaly is usually quite detailed; she often looks like an escapee from a John Byrne book.

In the 14th century, with Byzantine power crumbling and invasions on the increase, many of Thessaly’s monks fled to Meteora in an effort to escape the bloodshed.
At first, they hewed out cavernous lodgings in the dark mountain faces but, as the violence worsened, the monks were forced upwards and eventually built the spectacular monasteries that now perch like the icing on Meteora’s cake.
Thessaly has plenty more to offer — not least the beautiful vale of Tembi that will take you north to Macedonia — and is well worth ambling around at a leisurely pace, especially if you have access to your own transport.

 The Neolithic Cultures
To this Larissa phase dates the cemetery at Souphli, the earliest true cemetery of the Thessalian Neolithic, in which the cremated bones of the dead were crammed into fl- burnished jars each of which was buried in an individual pit.
The Late Neolithic in Thessaly is often referred to as the "Dimini culture" (for example, by Vermeule), but this is misleading in that the rich finds from Dimini itself represent a provincial eastern Thessalian variant of the later LN period in Thessaly as a whole.
Typical of the later LN in Thessaly is a growing regionalism, while in contemporary southern Greece settlement in caves is on the rise.
