  1. The gibraltar Europe CEPT 1981 stamps were also about Hercules. It could be that the country is really poor in legends, which I don't believe, or that there is little creativity on the part of those responsible for planning the stamps in this country. The stamps themselves are interesting since I couldn't get the sheetlets from the 1981 issue.

    1. Gibraltar is of course one of the Pillars of Hercules so I suppose it’s too good a legend not to use a second time.
