Pre- and post-Roman
Rain, heat, and major league baseball (oh those night games) continue to keep the blog off the streets of Winston-Salem. Susan wanted to note that she saw almost no obelisks in Salamanca. Too many crosses? At any rate, the faceless bull is an ancient statue erected long before the Romans conquered Iberia (pre-Roman); the cross is a typical monument, found just across the street from the faceless bull (post-Roman).
