"Marlowe was stabbed while reclining on a bed, not sitting at a table."

Marlowe was stabbed neither whilst reclining on a bed or sitting at a
table. Kit was stabbed whilst he was trying to, literally, pommel Ingrim
Frizer.

What level of certainty are we at, I wonder? We would clearly be more
certain if your man Guercino had died in 1563. If certainty is an
incomparable, the best that can be said on the basis of the dates given
is that we're still uncertain.

PS You're right about the nonsense thing, though. The Marlowe suggestion,
although apt, was definitely tongue-in-cheek, and the thread is richer for
your identification of the source.
