Winter might be the best time for golden objects, and especially crowns. Weren’t the mid-winter queen (and her king) important in early religion and fairy-tale? The cold days and long nights lend themselves to storytelling and dreaming.

In any case, here is an ancient crown from Macedonia, now on display in Thessalonica.

Enjoy!    RT
