Breaking News: Geza Alfoldi died on the Acropolis

Geza Alfoldi, professor at the University of Heidelberg, died on the Acropolis, probably from heart attack. He was in Greece in order to receive an honorary doctorate from Ionion University. It looks like Death took him before the honour was bestowed upon him. I was very sorry to hear the news but I cannot think of a more glorious death for such a diligent scholar of the Greek and Roman world.
