I came across the website below when looking for information on my magic bowl. The websites logo of a circle with a cross is what first drew my attention.

Schoyen Collection

I did not see another reference to it, so thought I would post the link for others to enjoy. Some of the images alone are enough to make me tremble with awe.

Wow, thanks for sharing this find Jev, there's some amazing stuff there!

"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy

Great stuff,I love ancient languages and their origins. Am so addicted to old book covers/bindings, seals. Am constantly on ebay on old antiquities.
