Today’s Scribbling: Ancient maps, weeping gods and Victorian archeology

The story led me from ancient Alexandria, through the tale of an ancient god-king who did not take kindly to the murder of his son, and up to the somewhat slapdash but well-meant restoration efforts of the Victorians being undercut by the somewhat mean-spirited and penny-pinching restoration efforts of the moderns. Not bad for a day out.
