Heracles and Athena.  Tondo of an Attic red-figure cup by the potter Python, signed by the painter Douris; 480-470 BCE.  Found at Vulci; now in the Staatliche Antikensammlungen, Munich.


Douris displays masterful abilities in drawing Athena with her hair style, the details of her gown with its full gathering, and a most lovable bewildered owl!But don’t you think that Heracles is a bit too thin for a hero?  ——  DS

The Eagle Slayer. 1845.
Edward William Wyon. British 1811-1855. bronze. part of the Royal Collection Trust.

Let’s get the story straight here: presumably an eagle killed the sheep at the archer’s feet.  The archer somehow shot his arrow at the eagle and hit it so that the bird would drop the sheep at his feet.  The sculptor .com aught the action before the archer could relax his pose. Not bad.  It is somewhat obvious that the action caused the archer to begin to feel his oats and manliness as he becomes tumescent under the carefully draped cloth, although there is no Victorian penis showing here. ——  DS

I hate when people post interesting images without any explanation of what we are looking at. After two minutes of googling I found that the Images are of the Meigs Elevated Railway taken from Scientific American (July 10, 1886)

Ah! Another example of American sources for British steam pump science fantasy! —— DS

Clay Tablet with twenty-five or thirty lines listing women singers or priestesses.

I have always wondered about these cuneiform tablets. Those that we have access to seem to have rather banal messages or lists or receipts for goods sold etc.  here we haves lists of temple singers.  Where is the popular literature?  Where are the erotic tales and bawdy songs?  There are Egyptian and Hebrew erotic literature and some literature that resembles novels but nothing in the languages that used cuneiform script on clay tablets!DS.
