Some people say ARCHAEOLOGY's very own senior editor Spencer Harrington looks like the Sphinx. Who can question his likeness to this chacmool, particularly first thing on a Monday morning? Oh, we know what you're thinking: he bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi's terra-cotta soldiers. He gets that all the time. And although only his wife knows for sure, it is rumored that, in the right light, he's the spitting image of the Minoan snake goddess.
