Visual Description:  Ancient Greek agora.

NOUFED  =  FONDUE,  LECINY  =  NICELY,  VODERU  =  DEVOUR,  LIFTEL  =  FILLET,  GOLANO  =  LAGOON,  RUQASE  =  SQUARE   —   Giving us:  FOCEEURFTONSR

Clue/Question:  The seller of the abacus priced it at 1000 Drachmas and wasn’t taking – – –

Answer:  COUNTER OFFERS

(No new clue words today – Sunday – but some excellent jumblings!  I found “fondue” – in the words of LindaLee – to be positively devious!  I had to back into it!  I also really enjoyed the jumblings of “devour” and “lagoon”, but they were all great.  The answer letter layout was really well done.  Even without the leading FO, I figured the second word was going to be OFFERS, which then led me to COUNTER.  The cartoon has a bit of a bonus clue, because the seller is standing behind a counter.  Great cartoon!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
