Art/Science: HISTORY

As in Nestor's love for horses, Deasy has the same
affection for them too. Also, while Nestor 'boasts' about
the Greek heroes, Deasy rants about the Englishmen.
Deasy wants Stephen to bring his article about 'foot and
mouth disease' to the newspaper office.
While Stephen
reads the article, Deasy jokes about the Jews in Ireland.

Both article and joke, are 'hints' for Stephen (Telemachus)
where he can find his father.

Nestor is the butler at Marlinspike Hall in the Tintin series. He was originally employed by the owners of the hall as we first encounter it, a pair of unscrupulous antique dealers named Bird, in The Secret of the Unicorn. After Captain Haddock purchases Marlinspike Hall, Nestor moves into his employment and remains for the rest of the series.
