A note from BCD: History and iconography blend in the old fashioned way to produce a charming diatribe that at the time would not only be acceptable but also celebrated. That was one hundred and fifty years ago. Now, what remains, are the lovely etchings, a real bonanza for Spartan coinage aficionados.
