Note(s): We always love to hear from our visitors. But before you write to us with a question, we suggest you carefully review the website's contents. The compendium's curator is often busy with the content development or away on the research trips and therefore the time available to answer your emails is limited. We do read all emails, but cannot guarantee a reply. The questions to which you are most likely to get an answer are those that we are uniquely qualified to answer, i.e. questions pertaining to the Old World ophidian iconography from 3000 BC to 650 AD. You may not receive a reply if: (1) You did not ask a question. (2) Your email address was invalid. (3) Your question was outside our area of expertise. (4) The answer was available on the website. We are dedicated to making our website useful to our visitors and always welcome your helpful comments and suggestions!
