Who does not examine with curiosity an Old skin, upon which Mexican priests painted their gods and hieroglyphics 500 years ago? Who can pass without emotion through the silent streets of Pompeii, which once resounded with the bustle of the forum and the song of sailors? Who does not take delight in treasuring up in his casket, among other gems, some Old coins of the age in which Pericles sent forth his ?eets against envious Sparta?
