StampNews.com would like to let all philately enthusiasts and stamp collectors know that Croatian Post (HP) Mostar has issued a commemorative postage stamp “Radoslav Dodig’s First Death Anniversary”. He was one of the most famous Herzegovinians.
Let’s appreciate the design of this item created by Karla Paliska and Tvrtko Bojić.
Radoslav Dodig was an archaeologist, philologist, historian, journalist, columnist, polyglot and a true “living encyclopedia”. Also known as the double winner of Kviskoteka, a highly popular general knowledge quiz show, broadcast by the Zagreb (Croatia) Television in the 1980-1995 period.
He was born on 6 April 1954 at Prolog (Ljubuški). He completed secondary education at the classical gymnasium in Split and studied classical philology at the Faculty of Philosophy in Skopje. He earned his master degree from the Department of Archaeology, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Zagreb. His master thesis was titled “Area of Ljubuški in Antiquity”.
Due to the incurable disease, he was unable to present his PhD thesis, titled “Rise and Fall of Ardiaei”. He died on 17 June 2016 in Ljubuški, where he was buried.
