army equipment

hi a couple of days ago I had a bizarre discussion about St-Martin (I know :) ). You know, the one who cut his cloak in two to give it to a beggar. My friend told me that possibly, it wasn't a sign of charity given the fact that his cloak didn't belong to him, but to the roman army. Now I wonder...

count me in, vermits onze video de geest heeft gegeven heb ik augustus niet kunnen opnemen, en ook la meglio gioventu zie ik wel zitten. En vermits ik de vorige -ondertussen legendarische- filmavond bij lupus gemist heb haal ik graag mijn schade in.

Triclinia

Salve I have a question about Roman dining rooms. I believe that a normal triclinium has three couches (lecti), and on each lectus there was room for three people. Roman women were invited to banquets, so I suppose that many couples ate dinner there. How were the places divided. Did husband and w...

salve, First of all, Attice, I read also Hadrian's memoires, but I liked L'oeuvre au noir better. But I admired her knowledge of antiquity, I read an article in which she tells she corrected a little mistake, when someone in the book was counting his money she first wrote that he was piling it up...

salve bij mij lijkt de test niet te werken, om één of andere reden. .Heb ze nu al twee keer afgelegd, met andere antwoorden, en ik kom er telkens op uit dat er niets over mij te zeggen valt omdat ik gemiddeld en evenwichtig ben. En dit terwijl ik (vond ik) nogal extreme antwoorden gaf, in de zin ...

when I was searching my avatar, I searched Google on "roman girl, roman woman" , and this was really the only cool picture. Apart from a thousand times the "portrait of Sappho" (you know, a woman holding a stilus in her hand) I found quite a lot links to porn sites, but luckily I found this one. I l...

patricius/plebeius

Is becoming a patrician on SVR a sign of merit eg. by posting lots of messages on the message board, or a privilege for founding fathers? Not that is it a matter of capital importance, but is there a distinction between patrician and plebeian gentes?

salve while reading old recipes it usually strikes me that food had to cook very long. Even in recipes from 60 years ago it was often necessary to let a dish 2 or 3 hour on the fire. I asked my grandfather how this was done, that women had to spend their whole morning by the fire. He said that is...

I didn't mean present games about antiquity, I meant games like they were played in Rome, like tesserae, latrunculi, senet. I also saw that the link in my previous message didn't work, so try the homepage of Wladyslaw Jan Kowalski, http://personal.psu.edu/w/x/wxk116

Ludus Calculorum

Check out this excellent site: http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/w/x/wxk116/roma/rbgames.html I wonder if someone here played one of these games before, are they difficult, are they fun, maybe someone h...
