Recently saw a newspaper article listing a theory that a particular
Greek plague in Athens was actually Ebola, based on symptoms plus a 
fascination by the Athenians of the time with African Green Monkeys as 
pets...

It liistd the American Journal of Emerging Diseases as the source of the 
original article....is this a media myth or does anyone have a citation
(is the article a paper, editorial, news&views type thing?)
