A broken marble sign reading Accountant’s Office lies on the floor of a deserted marble factory near Larissa.

  1. I translated that broken sign. It reads:

    "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings;
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

  2. Reminds me of "The Sopranos" where the mob would target a business, move in, take the receipts, use up all the company credit, and leave an empty shell.
