    Sorry for my english translated on google translator. This is may last work, a greek hoplite mercenary of Syracuse in VI sec. B.C.

    In 598 BC was founded, by the Syracusans, Camarina. Soon, however, does not respect the territorial borders of the motherland and Syracuse was forced to a military intervention to impose its supremacy.
    Only a few decades after its foundation, Syracuse destroyed Camarina in 553 B.C. This battle took part in several warriors mercenaries hired by Syracuse, among which there is the greek hoplite. A native of Kardia, Greece, carries a shield thistle of the sixth century. BC depicting a lion that looks behind the memory of the wars against the Persians. From these was a veteran and moved to Sicily in search of more money and wealth and to start a family in the fertile lands of eastern Sicily (Italy).

    The jar fragments and other vascular depict scenes of battle and hunting taken as true vascular findings of the sixth century

    I hope you like it.

    Many thanks to all. I'm very happy you like it, but the blue is black. The white balance of my camera is a bit wrong.
