Is This My Fortune?
« on: May 30, 2014, 12:07:02 pm »

Have I really found the Green Eye of the Little Yellow God or an ancient runic talisman that will bring untold wealth and fortune or is it a bit of tat? Any ideas?

It is similar in shape and design to the Phaistos Disk from Crete but the characters appear to be different. A souvenir of some sort I would think.
