Lanx Diskos

Thank you Milos for this stunning FDC! The stamp, selvage, cachet and postmark so flawlessly make up this Europa issue. I am really not a fan when postal authorities design them too matchy-matchy. As this one exemplifies, so much more can be conveyed otherwise. The stamp shows the rim of the 2nd cent CE. Lanx Diskos, a silver Roman plate found in a Germanic chieftain's tomb in the 1930s. The cancellation is a detail from the relief, and the cachet is the centre plate image below. 
Thank you Milos! More than decorative, this plate depicts stories from Rome's early history beginning with the exile of Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, the last Etruscan King, in 509 BCE.
