It could stand maybe a bit more research. This was a quick post before bed
(early to bed, early to rise this AM). Plato is easy to check but was this
the only (or just first) place where Urania was mentioned in this matter. I
think from previous searches for previous Uranian posts that it was a
general belief. Please, someone else check. It is early to rise because
I've got lots of work in front of me today.
