Turkey's leaders are taking a break from enabling #Russia against #NATO and ethnic cleansing Syria’s #Kurds to launch absurd claims and empty threats against Greek islands. We take a look at the painful history of Turkish rule on one of them: a thread on #Chios from #theHELC 1/10
The history of the Greeks in Chios goes back more than 3,000 years reaching to #Minoan and #Mycenaean times. Chios is the most likely birthplace of #Homer and had its own coins and democratic parliament by 600 BC. Its famous wine was exported from the Black Sea to #Egypt 2/10
The islanders sided with Athens and then #Alexander the Great against Persia and continued to prosper under first the #Roman and then the Eastern Roman (#Byzantine) Empire. The famous #mosaics of Nea Moni monastery are considered a masterpiece of Byzantine art 3/10

"Alexa, finde Wein-Reserven!"


"Hallo? Es gibt 6 Flaschen im Umkreis von 6 Metern?"


"Äh, ja gut, vergiss es."
So endete es auch bei #Alexander dem Großen.

Ich sehe den Film "Alexander" (der Große). Bin bei Minute 23 und Alexander ist erst 12.
Das wird ein langer Abend.
Minute 28. Plötzlich ist Alexander älter als seine Mutter (Angelina Jolie).
Was an dem Film bisher gefällt: Dionysos wird ordentlich verehrt!

Ancient Coin of the Day: An example of a particularly interesting design of a silver decadrachm of Alexander the Great, one of the so-called 'Porus' type: likely struck at Babylon, ca. 325 BC. #ACOTD #Alexander

There is a wealth of aspects to this coin that are deserving of comment, so I fear I won't be able to do it justice here. But until recently this type of coin was a source of much discussion, concerning date, depictions, place of minting, so you can see the interest.
The Reverse of this coin seems a good place to begin, with its crowned portrait of Alexander wielding a thunderbolt. He wears a triumphal crown and is arrayed in Macedonian attire; the thunderbolt in his hand serving as a marker of his semi-divine status.

Con motivo del #rankiacumple17 mi amigo @enrvalls me ha pedido que explique en un hilo qué diría a mi yo de 17 años. Tanto me ha dado @Rankia que sólo se me ocurre una manera de agradecerlo... un #iparfilms. He pedido ayuda a unos amigos ¿Me acompañan? Va HILO 👇(1/11) #Alpacino
Con 17, yo no pensaba en #finanzas ni #bolsa. Sabía que iría a Económicas y Empresariales, pero me gustaba mucho más escribir. Siga su pasión u otros vivirán su vida (Nota; terminaría la carrera compaginándolo como guionista en TV y ganando concursos literarios) #Pasión (2/11)
Equivóquese, caigáse. No conozco a nadie que haya aprendido a andar en bicicleta sin caerse. El error (los múltiples errores que he cometido en esta vida) son el mejor maestro. Caemos para aprender a levantarnos... #Batman (3/11)
