selge

Silver Stater with an interesting countermark, minted in Selge, Pisidia, Circa 350 BC

On the obverse, two athletes wrestle, grasping each other’s arms with a circular countermark in the shape of a curved triskelion. On the reverse, a slinger advances, about to discharge his shot; in right field, triskelion.

The obverse countermark is similar to reverse types commonly used by the dynasts of Lycia, and could indicate usage in that nearby province.

A triskelion or triskele is a motif consisting of three interlocked spirals, or three bent human legs. The triskelion symbol appears in many early cultures, including the earliest known astronomical calendar in Ireland at the famous megalithic tomb of Newgrange (c. 3200 BC, Mycenaean vessels, on coinage in Lycia and on staters of Pamphylia (at Aspendos, 370–333 BC) and Pisidia. It also appears as a heraldic emblem on warriors’ shields depicted on Greek pottery.

Strabo states that Selge was founded by Spartans. It was built on fertile land, producing an abundance of oil and wine. The town was difficult to access, being surrounded by cliffs and streams. Bridges were required to make them passable. Because of its location, excellent laws and Spartan-like warriors, Selge became the most powerful city of Pisidia and at one time was able to send 20,000 men into the battlefield if necessary.  Because of this, the Selgians were never subject to any foreign power.  When Alexander the Great passed through Pisidia in 333 BC, Selge sent an embassy to him and gained his favour and friendship.

Ancient city of Selge is on the southern slope of Mount Taurus, modern Antalya Province, Turkey.

I’ve felt so disgusting the past few days/weeks about my body. Whenever I look at myself in the mirror I can’t help but be unhappy. I would love to take diet supplements because I’m so fucking lazy and have no self control but I’m sure that can’t be good for breastfeeding. Like god why is my body doing this to me. Why can’t I stick to a diet and exercise plan when I want to so badly be in shape

Tänaseks trenniks oli:

1. kõigepealt 10 minutit jooksu

2. seejärel 25 minutit lihasharjutusi, mis on pandud ka siia videosse. Seekord tuleb igat harjutust teha 50 korda ning korrata 3-4 ringi. 

3. Pärast seda tegin 5 minutit ‘wall sit’i, mis on nagu nähtamatul toolil istumine, selg vastu seina. 

4. Lõpetuseks 10 minutit hüpitsaga hüppamist.

Kokku 50 minutit trenni.

Videod meeldivad? Pane laik ning jätkan oma trennipäevikuga terve nädala :)

ma kardan pimedust

tumedas sumedas männikumetsas
ja mu silmade värinast hoolimata
sa surud käed mu selja vastu
ei!
oodake
see oli vaid kujutelm

ma ei julge hoida silmi lahti
kinni ka mitte
kuid siiski siit pääseda
ma ei oska
ei!
see oli vaid kujutelm

siin pimedas ei jää mul muud varianti
kui hoida selg sirgelt
üks silm kinni teine lahti
ja võtta kinni su soojast käest

oh ei
see oli vaid
kujutelm

jätsime seltskonna sinnapaika ja jooksime kõminat kõrvas pidades restoranist välja. publik magistraalil pulbitses! suurest isamaasõjast sai mööda seitsekümmend aastat, aga minski linn kallas taeva tulevärgiga üle ja tänavad kihasid taas. juubeldajail, kes meile hordides vastu tulid, oli põhjust rõõmustada, sest oli peale vaadateski selge: nendest mitte keegi ei olnud lahingujõledusi oma silmaga näinud
