*This was not a happy project. Sten Ebbesen (b. 1946) - or was it his personal secretary Hannah Krogh Hansen (?) - refused me (b. 1967) working-access to the microfilms (1993ff) and to our scientific library at the University of Copenhagen, in spite of my fellowship: the Queen Ingrid's Roman Foundation (1992-1993) and my status as an undergraduate student of the University of Copenhagen (1986-1994/1999).
