About the Author

Nicholas J. Molinari, MA, MEd, is a doctoral candidate in Humanities at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island. His dissertation, in preparation, concerns Acheloios in relation to Thales and the origin of philosophy, and incorporates archaeological and numismatic evidence to paint a more robust picture of Thales and the emergence of philosophical activity. He is the co-author, with Dr. Nicola Sisci, of Potamikon: Sinews of Acheloios. A Comprehensive Catalog of the Bronze Coinage of the Man-Faced Bull, with Essays on Origin and Identity (Oxford: Archaeopress, 2016).
