    I have to buy this impressive type hekte and was inspired to colorize a portrait. I think it has an interesting look, and I hope we can imagine how can look an ancient sculpture which was also painted...

    I know about this fantastic project and have seen several screenshots from this film, but I have not seen this yet.
    I have seen also several screenshots from projects with restoration of ancient sculptures painting and trying to do something close to this.

    I think you should colorize the picture but please don't do it to the coin. I've seen many worn down Queen Vic and George III crowns colorized but an EL Hecte…..PLEASE NO.

    Here's another Zeus-Ammon image for you to colorize :D:D:D

    Beautiful coin!

    Did Zeus-Ammon exist prior to the Macedonian conquest of Egypt though? I had always thought that the Greco-Egyptian deity was made up by either Alexander or Ptolemy as a way to reconcile the native pantheon with that of the new overlords of Egypt.

    Definitely before Alexander III. My coin is from Lesbos 412-378 B.C.

    Ok, I'll take away brushes from hektes :)
    Very good Mytilene hekte with Zeus, but now I am planning to try to colorize Artemis...
