    Thank you for sharing your excellent commentary of art. I enjoy them.

    According to some ancient words, non-haircut often meant an attitude to existing reality. Ancient people would walk on the street nakedly and dishevelled to show their dissatisfactions. They were actually brave. Artists have always been the bravest people since the Classical Times. Soldiers mainly fought for eating, but artists are much greater.

    The stone "truck" looks very interesting, though I don't have an idea on it. I hope you sharing more info. :)

    Happy the year of the pig. These ancient Greek or Roman coins brought me many amazing info. especially comparing with Chinese stuff of the Classical Times.

    Western coins had to be gold or silver cos people were from many totally different races that would never share real confidence without precious metals.

    Philip II conceited himself being Zeus so that he could fuck everybody. Soon afterwards he’s got fucked by his son, then later by Cassander.

    It's said that Pius respected his former Augustus, and had a peaceful family and a really great Roman Empire.

    Ancient Roman, Turk, Mongol were nations of robbery who believed in violence. Basically they thought violence could have solved any problem. Their people worshipped their armies because of fear and economical externalities. However those people couldn't always receive the benefits of outside robbery by their armies. When the armies were not capable of robbing other nations, they started to rob their own people through govt or directly. After all, the generals of armies need to live on the top of the food chain. Even the meanest king of the world has to suck cocks of armies. on the other side, people didn't really have much to be exploited due to the lack of real fortune. Their minds had already been poisoned by robbery and easy money, which resulted in losing the courage and capability of valuabe labour. Those who didn't or couldn't really support thier armies wouldn't have a future unless they themselves or their children became a part of the armies offically or unoffically. Once the collapse began, it wouldn't go into reverse.

    After 1453, there came a few imitators of Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire. In those imitative states, Cosmopolitanism had been destroyed at last by nationalism, which was as the same as what happened at the end of Byzantine. The core nation or faith had been eaten up by pawns who should have been outsiders. This kind of stories never stop from ancient Greece to new continent.

    Agreed. Not super into it but love antiquities and whatnot. I tend to prefer and seek coins with depictions of animals (i.e., snakes, turtles, birds, fish, etc.). Ancient Greek turtle and owl coins are my ultimate favs.

    The ancient Greek created some fantastic stories 'bout animals W/ gods. They have been in all people's lives. I had even seen pegasos on a bronze mirror of Tang Dynasty.
