MetadataShow full item record
Greek FDC pair of envelopes displaying Scott 1581-88. Each envelope offers four of the Aesop's Fables stamps. Each is also stamped FDC in Greek and dated March 5, 1987. One has a closeup of a bust of Aesop while the other puts his bust among animals and in a rural setting. £2.99 from Constantin Glaridis, London, through eBay, June, '05.
Here are two presentations of Aesop in bust form. One takes an illustration of Aesop's head and torso and cuts away all background. The other situates a bust of Aesop in a classical background, appropriately surrounded by animals.
