Leutwitz Apollo and the Solder Marks

Just so this does not drop below the radar, readers will remember the issue of the solder of the Leutwitz Apollo (now in Cleveland Museum). The museum's publication misrepresented what the analyses of the lead isotopes had revealed, and Ernst Pernicka, the University of Heidelberg specialist who had conducted the original analyses (the full report of which was never released) took some more samples in or before April 2014. Initially he said the results would be available that summer (summer of 2014) but instead he has decided to sit on them and present them at the XIX International Congress on Ancient Bronzes, Los Angeles, California, October 13-17, 2015. The presentation has been accepted and the program and the abstracts should soon be accessible at

Vignette: Can't give all the details away, but the little numbers are important.
