"It's fun to dream." (a post-modern academic blurb)

So then the badger creates a cyclic Cycladean sphere from the clay found on Mílos, for a dollar. The sphere has hidden candies in it and everyone from the area eats and eats, sugar after sugary mouthful, the delicious treats from the Antiquity B.C. (based on current archaeological recoveries)

"...but with the exception of Naxos the soil is not very fertile: agricultural produce includes wine, fruit, wheat, olive oil, and tobacco. Cooler temperatures are in higher elevations and mainly do not receive wintry weather.

"A distinctive Neolithic culture amalgamating Anatolian and mainland Greek elements arose in the western Aegean before 4000 BCE, based on emmer wheat and wild-type barley, sheep and goats, pigs, and tuna that were apparently speared from small boats. Excavated sites include Saliagos and Kephala (on Keos) with signs of copper-working. Each of the small Cycladic islands could support no more than a few thousand people, though Late Cycladic boat models show that fifty oarsmen could be assembled from the scattered communities, and when the highly organized palace-culture of Crete arose, the islands faded into insignificance, with the exception of Delos, which retained its archaic reputation as a sanctuary through the period of Classical Greek civilization." (where is the "sanctuary" today?)
