Frieze From Tiryns

A post with pictures for today: a frieze of spirals from Tiryns.

As you can see, it's been restored; you can make out the original bits of fresco, and the reconstruction that was done around it.

Another friendly reminder: Helen's Daughter is in print.  As for last week's nasty business, I left a private but polite message on that person's Facebook page, but she never answered.  What was really bad was that she down-rated all the other reviews of my book after accusing me of shilling for reviews. Pot, meet kettle.  Ah, well, I wash my hands of the whole affair.

Has anyone bought and/or started reading Knossos? I've had no feedback on this book.  If I sound a little insecure, forgive me.  I took a big hit yesterday when my car needed $700 of servicing.

ku-ru-so

The Mycenaean word ku-ru-so corresponds with modern Greek chryso, and was most likely pronounced khruso.  And below, you can see an example of Mycenaean gold work: a golden octopus ornament found at Mycenae.
