    mythologists on had a perception

    At last he became, in the words of Dio Chrysostom, who wrote during the second century A.D.: “Our Zeus, the giver of every good gift, the common father and saviour and guardian of mankind.”
    The Odyssey speaks of “the divine for which all men long,” and hundreds of years later Aristotle wrote, “Excellence, much labored for by the race of mortals.” The Greeks from the earliest mythologists on had a perception of the divine and the excellent.

    Hello friends,

    Is the blue on a preposition? If yes then it makes no sense tome. Would you please clarify it to me? "on" what?

    Thank you

    Re: mythologists on had a perception

    Does this help?

    The
    Odyssey speaks of “the divine for which all men long,” and hundreds of years later Aristotle wrote, “Excellence, much labored for by the race of mortals.” The Greeks (from the earliest mythologists on) had a perception of the divine and the excellent.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
