CLARIFICATION ON HOLT'S ARTICLE ON ALEXENDER'S ELEPHANT MEDALLIONS

Rick Witschonke writes: "A clarification of my clarification: Holt
wrote a book about the silver elephant medallions; no one (as far as
I know) doubts their authenticity.  More recently, a gold coin was
published, featuring a head of Alexander in elephant headdress and
an elephant.  This unique coin was the subject of Holt's ARAMCO article,
and is the piece that is condemned by Fischer-Bossert in his ANS
Magazine article.  Readers may have been confused based on your
intro to my clarification."

[Thanks for clearing the mud from my introduction.  A link to the
item is shown below.  I had seen the ANS article, but regretfully
read neither of the articles in detail.   -Editor]
