You know me, I love to check out the most recently uploaded Curiosity rover photos and in a three minutes of looking I had found something. I saw the number 2 in the old style font. You know the old dusty typewriter in a box that your grandparents had in the closet. Well, the number 2 is there, and I placed a real old font 2 in the corner near it to compare.
Also I found the face of Pan. In Greek religion and mythology, Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds and rustic music, and companion of the nymphs. Half man, half goat, his face is easy to make out, but why its on Mars is beyond me, but perhaps our ancient greek mythology actually came from Mars. A story from aliens brought to Earth that captivated humans so much, they passed it down from generation to generation.
The number 2 is just 3 feet away from the face. The number 2 is about 4 inches from top to bottom. The face is about 6 inches from top of head to end of beard on chin.
