In 1890, James Strong published an exhaustive concordance of the bible. This is a detailed index of every word in the bible, and all the places where it appears. He later added Hebrew and Greek word lists, for quick reference.

#933 on Strong’s Hebrew lexicon (Strong H933) is בּהק (bôhaq), meaning “a harmless eruption of the skin, skin spot” (or, for Wordle fans, a scurf). It is only used once in the bible, in Leviticus 13:39.

In 934 CE, Haakon I (“the Good”), a son of the late King Harald Fairhair, once again reunites the kingdom after he has deposed his half-brother Eric Bloodaxe. Haakon is installed as king of Norway.

I like the one name.

Summer of 936 CE – Hugh of Provence, king of Italy, dispatches his son and co-ruler Lothair II with a third expedition to Rome to dislodge Alberic II. Assault after assault is repulsed by the Roman civic militia. At length, weakened by an epidemic, the Lombard nobles press on Hugh to accept a peace treaty mediated by Odo of Cluny.

Question here, why dislodge and not something else?

In the Melvil Dewey system that LibraryThing uses to categorize non-fiction works, 939 is used for Ancient History - Other (i.e. not dealt with in 931 through 938). This includes the ancient history of the Grecian archipelago (e.g. Crete), Western Asia Minor, Eastern Asia Minor, Syria, Northwestern Asia, South Central Asia, minor African countries, Southeastern Europe, and any other areas that have not been previously given their own numbers.

Asia Minor was in the area mostly covered by modern Turkey, and included Thrace, Pergamon, Phrygia, Galatia, Armenia, Urartu, Assyria, Cilicia, Lycia, Ionia, Lydia, and Troy.
