At the last post in Sep
2014 the 'like' count at the Facebook page for PtolemyBronze.com was still
under 300. As of today it jumped to 700 with nearly 300 'like' hits in just the last few days. Seems quite a few of the people who are putting eyes on the page are actually in Egypt
and seem to like this site that's about their ancient history
and also tell their friends about it. The Facebook page has also been running a series of images of coin types
with design elements outlined in color to teach people how to recognize the design elements like Ammon
horn, diadem, basileon, elephant-skin headdress features, etc. Those seem to be a hit and draw their own comments and feedback.

Also, since September's post here, a few additional coin types
and new photos have been added to the 'coin photos' page of the web site itself and more are coming.
Thanks for your support. At the recent rate of new visitors to the Facebook page it sure looks like it's possible it could indeed 'go viral'.PtolemAE
