More On Fighting Cocks

A kind colleague is reading a draft article of mine on Roman currency bars and pointed out to me that I missed Bruneau’s important (and well illustrated) 1965 article.

I am most taken by mosaic from a private villa on Crete that is now in the Chania museum.  The first two images are screen shots from the museum’s own website and even higher resolution is available there.

This is from an excellent scholar’s blog, Alexandra Kankeleit, who has a long detailed post on the mosaic.

My interest is of course because of RRC 12/1.
