"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee . . .

. . . the hands can’t hit what the eye can’t see.”

I can’t help but think of these famous lines from Muhammad Ali as I stand in the Archaeological Museum of Delos. Before me is a fresco of boxers. It was painted on a wall of a home from about 100 BC.

Delos is a tiny island in the South Aegean, not far from Mykonos, Greece. Mythologically, Delos is the birthplace of Apollo.

Archaeological excavations were initiated on the island in 1872 and continue to this day.
