Re: A terrible loss - Agesilaos; Karl

Greetings,

We have lost a member that brought much to our discussion and kept many pushing themselves

Amyntoros, thank you for posting; Alexias, well done.

Re: What Happened To Pothos?

Greetings Pothosians, Just stepping in, as one of the moderators, to let members know some of us *are* still present and *do* check in, but the past two years has been rather busy for some of us. I understand the frustration when a thread evolves into one or two people discussing the minutiae of an ...

Re: Another Finding of Alexander's Tomb?

Greetings Amyntoros,
