On the streets of Mycenae/
Which are rather ‘urine-y’/
So I’d bet my hat, if I were youse..”

Socrates and Alcibiades:
has info and links that point to more info about this roughly B4 paper size painting. File history has the strip coloration image.
Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #2979 (August 17, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there pointing to the blog entry with the artist info comment. So far 5 works, by this artist, have been used here. The June 30, 2021, strip has the prior.

the greek army saved bundles on uniform costs…
“Whosoever pulls this thorn from my paw is rightwise born King of Athens. No, wait, I’m getting my prophesies mixed up. Those fumes at Delphi were really strong…”
