Pyrrhus of Epirus

I made this card today thinking of my good buddy Samson Johnson.

A study of Pyrrhus reveals him to be from the Greek tribe of Molossia. As we've learned in the Ancient Greek Deck from the Expanded Edition, not all was peaches and cream with Sparta. The Molossians were not a part of the Delian League either.

In all, Molossia has more to do with Macedonia than Greece.

Olypias, the mother of Alexander the great, was Molossian and was a lot cooler than Angelina Jolie could have ever been.

Hope this card brings a contemplative smile to your face.

It's a doozy. Use wisely.
