Carry Me Back To Old Vergina
Vergina? It's where the ancient Macedonians buried kings and their kin. And -- oh, here's a shocker! -- it's where a symbol was dug up that became quite the hot potato betwixt F. Y. R. Macedona and Greece. (Turns out if you're a king, it matters a lot what you put on your larnax; but I'm sure you knew that already).

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."
