  1. The very first plate with the Greek letters, means "Πειριθος (name – male) and Ευφροσύνη (name – female) lived decorously. The parents ( I assume it means their parents are offering this plate) in grace of their memory"

  2. This is a natural and proper NatGeo subject. Not that bulshit, that fraud of Global Warming. Finally some decency.

  3. Well it's good to see that some artifacts are being protected when so many get destroyed through all the unrest in the middle east.
