I've been commissioned by a postdoctoral research associate here at the museum to take photographs of "cleared and stained" frog specimens. They are super tiny and float in dishes of glycerine. Using the microptics lab has been a challenge but I am quite happy with the photographic results!
This is a drawing of two sides of a really old coin. The side with the figure is of winged victory dragging a person (vanquished enemy?) by the head. So you can see the head and torso at the bottom right. I've no idea what the lettering means.
