Greek marble grave stele of a girl ~ c. 450-440 BCE

Every child is precious. This stele memorialising a lost girl who loved doves is heart wrenching for the beauty and the grief conveyed.

@Greenseer @CoinOfNote @antiquidons @histodons @mythology What a beautiful coin! I wonder if it is reallya trophy he is carrying though 🤔
It looks to me like a soldier on the move, carrying his spear, his sword and/or armour.

@CoinOfNote @Greenseer Newly struck coins with Greek or Roman gods on them? Hm... I can only think of the Athenian owl on Greek's euros but those are a symbol of Athene, not Athene herself.

Perseus seeing a woman chained to a rock (b/c that's how love works... 🤔):

You can learn the entire myth of (and how make it less cringe) on our latest episode here: https://starrytimepodcast.com/episodes

@starrytimepod As a Perseus simp, I have to point out that Perseus saw a woman in danger and he acted and saved her. There is a version in which he arranges the marriage to her first but in most versions he just does the right thing without his own gain in mind. Perseus is the purest cinnamon roll hero in all of Greek mythology, I prefer to believe he saved Andromeda because he saw someone in danger and had the means to do something about it. 🙂

So was anyone going to tell me that the "sacrificial virgin rescued from dragon by dashing hero" story existed as a gay love story in ancient times, or was I supposed to just find out from Antoninus Liberalis myself?...

I wrote a short piece on safe tracking apps, expanding on a few tweets I posted at the time was overturned. Incidents of testing women for abortion drugs in the UK prompted me to turn it into an article:

@AimeeMaroux@mastodon.social avatar

@allpoints This is from the article that made me put together a list of safe apps:

"Under Section 58 of the Offence Against the Person Act 1861, which carries a maximum life sentence, it is illegal for a woman to administer “poison” (abortion pills) with the intent to cause her own miscarriage after the 24-week legal limit.

Last month, the fifth woman this year appeared in an English court charged under Section 58, compared with only three previous prosecutions in the past 160 years."

@AimeeMaroux@mastodon.social avatar

@allpoints That is really scary! The apps don't help against actual drug tests like that but I hope showing these options helps keeping the data safe that might tip the wrong people off.

If you have a uterus and you live in the UK, it's time to update your threat model to include police testing you for the presence of abortion meds and requesting data from period-tracking apps: https://www.tortoisemedia.com/2023/10/30/british-police-testing-women-for-abortion-drugs/

Where to begin hunting down information on #mythology ? Specifically ancient British mythology (basically, anything but the King Arthur cycle of myths - I love it in its own way, but it's not what I'm looking for...). I'm aware of Orkneyjar ( http://www.orkneyjar.com/folklore/index.html ) which features some great info on folklore and myths of Orkney, but what about other places? Scotland, Ireland...? Been using Wikipedia thus far, and need a bit of direction beyond just typing "placename myths" into my search bar.
