- #Heraclitus 113

[Kahn 1979, pp. 267-271]
“With deliberate antimony #Heraclitus here presents his positive conception of the divine ... The #aphorism is unusually dense and puzzling, full of conflicting forces mysteriously under control.”

- Kahn, ‘Art and Thought of #Heraclitus,’ 1979, pp. 267
“... for #Heraclitus as for Aeschylus ‘#etymology’ must be taken literally: an ‘etymos #logos’ is a ‘true statement’ hidden in the form of a name ... the name ‘Zēnos’ affirms that the supreme #deity is also a principle of life, like the ‘everliving fire’ ...”

- Kahn 1979 p. 270

@Imlandris1 Also ich habe nochmal versucht, #Wiedergut zuzuhören, kann aber nicht viel damit anfangen. Wenn Sie viel von ihm gelernt haben, dann können Sie mir vielleicht sagen, (1) was Wiedergut unter 'Dimension' versteht (es gibt viele Dimensionsbegriffe), (2) ob er irgendwo irgendwelche..
@Imlandris1 ..zumindest halbwegs nachprüfbare Messdaten präsentiert (mündlich oder schriftlich), die die von ihm mit Überzeugung behauptete Existenz von 'fünfdimensionalen, und im fünfdimensionalen Bereich agierenden Zwergen mit hohem Wissenspotenzial' auch nur ansatzweise belegen? Z.B. ..
@Imlandris1 ..sagt Herr Wiedergut ab 2h41m19s in folgendes (Transkription von LGcommaI):
»Sicher [!] ist, dass, äh, sie---also dass diese Wesen, die denen sie was, was zu tun haben, irgendwie äh mit dem #Zwergenreich vernetzt sind. Is a irgendwie naheliegend, ne?

Alright, so the esteemed @ArmoryBazaar posted some pictures of coins found in Idlib - Syria. I would like to make a thread out of this, for future coins. I will post my take on these coins, but I'm very much interested in other opinions.
The two small copper coins (picture 2 & 3) are in my opinion #Umayyad copper fals. The inscription features Islamic texts, most definitely the Islamic shahada. That indicates they're from the later Umayyad period. I would say 8th century.
It's really possible that the last coin is much older that the other coins. It still features a cross and human imagery, indicating Byzantine influences. This kind of coins were used in early Umayyad times, when the caliphs still imitated #Byzantine en #Persian coinage.
