Got an email this morning from academia.edu with a suggested topic based upon some similar papers I'd download previously. The paper's topic was, "Treasures from the Deep: Coins from Hellenistic and Roman Republican Shipwrecks "

Sounded interesting so I downloaded it. Sadly, the title was truncated in the PDF file name and now I'm a bit nervous about opening it...

An under-collected area, indeed.   Although not one where you can really expect to visit, see the sights, and bring back modern snapshots.   Plus you need to give up a coin to pay the ferryman.

Wouldn't they all remain molten spherical blobs?  Or perhaps the fires of hell have lost some of their potency over the aeons and are cooler than advertised.

Anyway, that is why I prefer to collect Cthulhu's Chthonic Cistophori, they are much cooler....

Hi folks,

Wasn't that one of Dante's unfinished volumes? Perhaps someone has finally posthumously completed it.
