I think it means never mind, but I'm not sure.

Regarding Hypatia and the movie Agora, you need to realize that it's just a movie and is not entirely accurate.   Smiley

She wasn't sentenced to death, she was killed by a mob of zealots who hated her perceived alliance with an opposing political figure.

Also, check out the following article:
