Again, a wonderful example of the distance trade goods went.
This would be an interesting connection, but as the expert says, “it’s a stretch of the imagination,” albeit one that might be true.
This is a site that keeps on giving. Alexandria is so different from the rest of Egypt, in large part because of this Graeco-Roman connection. Marvellous find.
This prehistoric settlement sounds enormous, with a population of between 2000 and 3000 people. Very interesting in terms of the archaeology of societies.
More interesting discoveries from Malta, although not megalithic.
I’m leading a tour to Egypt later this year and I CAN. NOT. WAIT. to see this. When I first went to Egypt, the whole area was off limits, and we had to sneak up to the pyramid. This will be amazing.
It’s so good to see countries taking serious interest in their ancient heritage. It’s so important, I think, to know where one comes from.
Fantastic find. Autographs, along with things like wigs, clothing, sandals, etc. work by the ancient people, truly bring them to life in ways nothing else does, in my opinion.
So, this was found being reused as part of the floor in a church. I’ll bet Dionysus was having a giggle about that.
