  1. Fascinating. I understand form history and ancient art that there were lions in Persia, Asia minor (turkey), all the way around to Norht Africa. I don’t know if they reached to Macedonia… Have to check a vague memory of “Thrace”, in ancient Greek history…
    Thracia is a bit to the east of Macedonia… And I think Hercules killed a lion with bare hands. So maybe there were lions all the way to Greece?
    Great post. Thank you.
