Vulture-origins

Vultures in Egypt

A vulture is a scavenging bird of prey.

History

During the Peloponnesian War vultures were a common sight in Greece. The Spartan misthios Kassandra often saw them gathering around a kill, but the birds were quick to flee as she approached them.[1]

During the Ptolemaic dynasty, vulture skulls were in demand in Egyptian markets and were worth 7 drachmae in 48 BCE.[2]

In 48 BCE, Actaeon, the Order of the Ancients member known by the cryptonym The Vulture was killed in Alexandria by Aya, as a revenge for the death of her son, Khemu.[2]
