In ancient greece, wasn't the sky blue (or rather, white.) as it is today?

You see, when reffering to light rays, all of the primary ones put together -> white or clear.

However, air particles bend and refract the light, only the light that isn't absorbed is reflected. In other words, the air absorbs all but blue, thus why it appears blue. That is why I said white...

Well, yes i imagine that the sky was the same colour that it is now. However, I am refering to what THEY said the colour was (they didn't have a word for blue.)

Okay, round over and Contest over. Thankyou to all who participated. The answers were:

Bronze. Homer wrote that the sky was bronze.

Honalulu, although it is sort of a trick question. The entire country is counted as the city for some reason. Research it yourself, i'm tired :D .

And the winner is:


ALKHAZOR!

Mods can lock this now.
