The Kythera Adventure. November/December 2011 ODYSSEY pp. 18-19

Photograph - Shot in the dark: two pistols, one encrusted with fragments of wine bottles, were among recovered items.

In 1802, one of the ships charted by Lord Elgin to transport the Parthenon Marbles to England sank off the coast of the southern Peloponnese. Most of its cargo was recovered but a Greek Australian foundation and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture have joined in a new salvage mission they hope will yield vital information about the ship as well as its cargo.

Mediterranean Cookbook

The late Alan Davidson (who sadly died at the end of 2003) had a distinguished career as a writer and publisher of books on food and cookery. His greatest achievement was 'The Oxford Companion to Food' (1999), but this was anticipated by his trio of books on seafood, of which this was the first (published in 1972), as well as studies of the fish cookery of Laos; an edition and translation, with his wife, Jane Davidson, of the 'Grande Dictionaire' of Alexandre Dumas, and even a novel, 'Something Quite ...

Vromopapadia indoors

This shy millipede has a dark, glossy body that stretches and curls along the wall to form amusing shapes, transforming itself from a straight line into a question mark, a half-circle, or an ess-curve, then curling up into a little spiral when disturbed. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004

Vromopapadia outdoors

The vromopapadia is a harmless millipede whose names translates as 'stinking priest's wife.' That’s because, when prodded, the vromopapadia emits an oily, sickly, lingering stench. In dry weather, the vromopapadia hides outdoors, under leaves and rocks. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004

Rings of a dead Vromopapadia

Even in death, when its body segments turn into a dry little heap of tiny white hoops, the vromopapadia can put out a repulsive smell. If you find it necessary to remove a vromopapadia, dead or alive, do so gingerly and respectfully. A piece of adhesive tape comes in handy. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004

Blue-legged Scolopendra

This small Scolopendra has blue-green legs. Perhaps this coloration is typical of immatures, or maybe this creature belongs to a subspecies of the larger, yellow-legged variety.

Rose Beetle on Artichoke
