Beautiful! Notice the influence of Lydian early electrum in the hairy wart high on the nose. Trites under Alyattes showed this trait. Most interesting and well struck with sharp details. -h

You have a great eye for this stuff.


I just took a walk thru your collection for the first time in quite awhile.


I am envious of what you have put together.

Thanks, everyone. This hekte blew me away when I saw it on friday.


As you can see from my gallery, I've made a lot of changes this past year. I am heavily bitten by the Greek bug. Mike warned me about how addicting they can be!
