Fictional Conversation Between Myself and Apollonius of Perga.
Tony was busy working on one of his board games — Dice Power Transfer Backgammon. In the midst of a deep think, the shade of Apollonius appeared before him going from ghostly image to appearing solid and natural.
Tony: Hello, Apollonius! It’s a pleasure to finally meet you!

Tony: Well, I know about your book on the conics, but did you know that I wrote a book on the conics, too?
