"However, Ramses perked up with Emerson announced his intention of calling on Slatin Pasha, who was assisting the Intelligence Department. I myself looked forward to meeting this astonishing man whose adventures had become the stuff of legend." - Amelia Peabody, The Last Camel Died at Noon by Elizabeth Peters
A treasure of 51 Macedonian gold coins (and a necklace) hidden inside a cavity in the rock in Ancient Corinth. The coins of Philipp II come from Pella and Amphipolis in Macedonia, while those of Alexander III (the Great) from Amphipolis, from Miletus and Tarsus in Asia Minor, Salamis in Cyprus and Sidon in Phoenicia. The treasure trove was hidden sometime after 330 BC, when Alexander was in Asia and a Macedonian garrison had been stationed in Corinth to safeguard the Isthmus.
The main road through the abandoned East Garrison of Fort McDowell, on Angel Island, San Francisco Bay. Built around 1910, that's the main mess hall on the left with the 1,000-man barracks beyond, the the Post Exchange on the right. About 87,000 men passed through this base in training and deployment between 1910 and 1946, when the island was declared surplus and abandoned.
East Garrison of Fort McDowell, Angel Island, San Francisco Bay. Construction began in 1910 on the world's largest and most elaborate military induction center of it's day. Nearly 4,000 men a month passed through here. The largest building was originally called the "600-man barracks" and later became the "1,000-man barracks" as the overcrowding became rampant. By 1946, the entire island was declared surplus property and abandoned.
