STEALING ZEUS'S THUNDER: ALEXENDER'S ELEPHANT MEDALLIONS

This week's Explorator newsletter linked to an interesting article

himself."

"In his article “Stealing Zeus’s Thunder,” published in the May/June
2005 issue of Saudi Aramco World, historian Frank L. Holt reported
that a fresh discovery might add another chapter to the story of
Alexander the Great and his elephant medallions — and indeed, it has."
