@orientalinst: Happy #Caturday! Did you know that the winged #lion is a common #Achaemenid motif? On this plaque, we see registers of winged lions, winged lions devouring gazelles, and winged bulls in relief.

@SarahEBond: A few days ago, The Oxford Handbook of Byzantine Literature was published. Im not a huge fan of handbooks, but this one does look extremely helpful and I am digging into Ivan Drpić's chapter on the Byzantine epigraphic habit. Clapping as I read this intro.

@jasonhickel: This is 100% correct. Our existing political alignments are going to fail us on climate, utterly. None of us should be comfortable with this fact. Our only option is to build mass movements with the power to shut down the fossil fuel industry and win a post-capitalist transition. https://t.co/4pI4VmIGti

@fermatslibrary: Before 1500's, most math problems and solutions would be written out.

Francois Viete, a French Lawyer, was the first to use symbols and letters to represent numbers in the late 1500's. This is what 3x+7 = 8(2x-5) looked like: https://t.co/aLxFGznleY

@jasonhickel: US intervention and collusion with right-wing regimes has utterly destabilized Guatemala, and much of the rest of the region. As the Biden administration seeks to discover the "root causes" of migration from central America, they would do well to look in the mirror.

@jasonhickel: This move ended 10 hopeful years of democracy in Guatemala. The US went on to install and support a series of brutal right-wing dictatorships that ruled for 42 years, and massacred up to 200,000 Indigenous Mayans for resisting land grabs.
