    Treasure from the Era of Alexander the Great found in Israeli cave



    Spelunkers have done it again...these daring souls are responsible for so many discoveries. This is the link to the article in Discovery News.

    If you click on the Gallery link, you can see the great images of the cave and the finds.

    This coin with the head of Alexander on one side, actually minted during his reign, seems to be in particularly good condition. If you're reading this, LeBrok, I thought of you. I've never seen a better example of a Greek nose!

    That profile does look quite a bit like my Greek brother-in-law.

    Typical Greek profile all right. High roots, nose bridge parallel and in line with forehead, and in almost vertical configuration. South Balkan phenotype.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.
