• 11/04/2016: The post on Artocarpus (Thalia) has been updated with additional historical background information
  • 06/04/2016: Reworked Glyph readings page to add third gallow sound value and improved readability. Added two examples from the Satyricon to the On the Cross post, as well as a more concrete interpretation of the image as referring to the constellation Argo Navis.
  • 22/03/2016: Added comparable image from the Leiden Dioscorides to D2, illustration of Cinnamomum trunk.
  • 17/03/2016: Added two new elements in favor of an analysis of plant A4 as saffron. The leaves of the flowers can be interpreted as a mnemonic element that fits the scene, and I explain how a mostly faded detail depicts harvested saffron threads.
  • 17/03/2016: Added this sticky post so I can keep a “news” item on the first page. New things will be added on top.
