Photographer's Note

This is a door knocker on the massive front door of an old mansion in the Chora of Patmos. For a long time I thought it was goddess Athena, then thought it might be Alexander the Great. It might be neither, I have no one to ask. I'll try to find out next time I go to Patmos.
There are several impressive mansions in Chora, two or three centuries old, built at a time when the island flourished due to trade and shipping.

Thank you for visiting.
