Well done!
:)
so named, when the natives would hollow out the branches,
and use as quivers for their arrows.

rod222 - OK. Since no one else in the classroom has raised a hand, here is my answer to your philatelic riddle: Your lithographed stamp issued by Greece in 1947, Scott No. 513, depicts Apollo, the Greek god of music, poetry, plague, oracles, sun, medicine, light and knowledge, among whose attributes are bow and arrows. - nethryk
