FEATURED WEB PAGE: ANCIENT MONSTERS ON ANCIENT COINSThis week's featured web page is Bill Welch's Ancient Monsters on Ancient Coins.
From the web site:
What happens if you take the front of one animal and attach it to the back of another? Maybe mix in parts of some more? Some odd-looking creatures can be found in the art of more than one ancient culture, right back to the 7th century BCE. The Greeks were pretty good at this sort of mixture, and quite a few appeared on Greek and Roman coins.
