Un'esclusione non pero irrimediabile: con una rilettura del mito di Procne
e Filomela, l'autrice affida infatti a Alice Brugel l'oneroso compito di mettere in dubbio e ribaltare, seppur ufficiosamente, il verdetto di assoluzione emanato per Limonta:
(61) The link between cannibalism and revenge is found in Seneca's Thyestes and in the story of Philomela and Procne
's revenge against Tereus in Ovid's Metamorphoses.
No other mention of his noble status is given within the legend; yet since he is married to King Pandion's daughter Procne
, one unfamiliar with the myth may surmise that he is of noble birth.

Writing with her husband, bandmate Dan Moses, Kilbane adapts myths--like that of Procne
and Philomela in Weightless or Medea in The Medea Cycle--because she's interested in worlds where fantastical transformations, like a woman turning into a bird, are natural, even expected.
