This is a letter that Don's sister sent to us. Yes, Nike is the statue that Don found last summer. I am also adding a picture of Don when he found it
Subject: Tel Dor and Nike
In today's Mercury News there was a small article about the discovery of Nike. There is a picture of Martin Wells holding Nike, the Greek winged victory. The article says the Berkeley team was especially proud of the headless statue of Nike, which members removed from underneath a wall that sat atop her at Tel Dor. The article says the discovery lends credence that Jewish King Alexander Janneaus destroyed all things pagan in the harbor city of Tel Dor, Israel when he came to power around 100 B.C. I recognized the statue immediately as the one that Don discovered last summer. It is now in an Israeli museum.
