In: from Spain and Greece
From the city of Athens this postcard originates. Showin 'Pensive Athena', a marble relief (made appr. 460 BC) depicting the ancient Greek Goddess standing in front of a stone stele. Pallas Athena is one of my favourite mythological figures for the fact that she is the goddess of wisdom and art/craft.
Fortunately Eva remembered me liking a rubber stamp depicting Athena, and therefore she chose to send me this card. Bought in Greece and sent from Spain. So the stamp on the back is Spanish, and has been issued for the 2017 Europe theme, 'Castles'. Click on this link, and then on the country, to see the variety of Europe 2017 stamps issued this year.
Thank you very much, moltes gràcies, Eva!
