|06:35 pm - Ooh, a reason to check out a book written in German. . .|
Apparently, there is a Roman military belt that is fitted with gold plates depicting the deeds of Hercules, found in a Germanic cemetery at Kemnitz. And I'm pretty sure there's a picture.
I think I can find it in the following source:
Geisler, H., 1973: Ein Adelsgrab auf dem germanischen Urnengräbergeld bei Kemnitz, Kr. Potsdam-Land, Zeitschrift für Archäologie 7, 279-298.So, of course, I've ordered it from the library.
I'm really curious to see how it looks, to find out how it was done. I certainly hope that there are pictures of this thing.
Yeah, these are the kind of things that excite me.

Sounds like it was a wonderful experience. It Reminds me of when I dedicated myself to a relationship with Venus. As I think of her now, I feel her presence. I don't recall that I actually specifically dedicated myself to her as her daughter - but I think that is the best way to describe our relationship.
