I just noticed your snippet beneath the signature and wondered whether it
was intentionally drawn from Aeschylus, Agamemnon 314, where Clytemnestra
finishes here description of the beacon fires that have brought immediate
news back to her at Argos of the capture of Troy:
NIKAi D' hO PRWTOS KAI TELEUTAIOS DRAMWN
more literally, "and the first and final runner wins"
or is it your own version of the proverbial Jesus saying (Mt 19;30, etc.),
POLLOI DE ESONTAI PRWTOI ESCATOI KAI ESCATOI PRWTOI ?
