There's a pool at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
(that's it below too, fronting the temple of Dendur,
which has been around in one place or another
since 15 B.C—more about that another day).
So why do people feel compelled to toss coins
into every container of water they come across?
This is not the Trevi Fountain, folks (though I
sincerely hope you got your wish if you made one).
