Item #: SCP-4160

Object Class: Keter Neutralized

Laconic Containment Procedures: Use any reasonable means to prevent people from holding history classes on November 15th of each year. It's neutralized so no procedures are needed.

Laconic Description: SCP-4160 is an event that takes place annually on November 15th within a random history class being held at the time, during which the teacher and a student will begin arguing. This continues to escalate until someone intervenes or one kills the other. Survivors will hear women speaking Greek at the end of each event, consisting of brief quips at each other.

The teacher will still attempt to finish their lesson during combat, but none ever succeeded until a Foundation historian survived an SCP-4160 event and finished her seminar. Everyone involved calmed down and the Greek voices said "Well played, Clio," Clio being the Greek Muse of history. After this, no new SCP-4160 events have been recorded.

Additional Context: It is implied that the Greco-Roman Muses are responsible for inciting SCP-4160 out of a sort of sibling rivalry between Comedy, Tragedy, and History.

SCP-4160 was an entry in the SCP-4000 contest, where it won 32nd place.
