A list of the different animals that have appeared on ancient Greek and Roman coins

Wild, exotic animals, available throughout the ancient Greek and Roman empires were revered and even struck on their coins. Animals such as antelopes, lions and elephants were brought to amphitheaters, the most famous being the Colosseum and for use in various entertainments. Many Roman legions used animals as a symbol for their legions. Just like we have zoos in modern times, the ancients too were fascinated by the exotic beauty and even possible danger these animals presented. The ancient Greeks and Romans put animals on their coins and are a very interesting topic in themselves to collect, especially for animal lovers.

Gorgon to dust

Through the crowd they appeared to her the tormentor Every nightmare a walking flesh wound dealt, felt It was then she decided to face it Head on Though her heart beat so fast she feared it’s escape Facing this gorgon of her waking hours Who held every dream and tried to crush it To dust Smile painted on she greets the night fear The terror of every living hour  Deciding a fake grin and a proof…

In the Car (San Francisco)

External image

For almost ten years, the North Bay was home. Then I left. On a trip back last December I took these shots from the safe vantage point of the passenger seat. There’s nothing more exciting than the fast clip of the open freeway and the turn of the road, here on the way from Oakland towards and over the Bay Bridge and into San Francisco. Over time you carve a groove into a place. The symbiotic relationship between mind and local place is mental, even “spiritual.”  They are still dismantling the old Bay Bridge which loom dark next to the whiteness of the new structure. As I remember it from a distance, my thoughts once felt very much a part of that geography. Thrilled to be back, the Bay Area felt at once familiar and alien.
