Re: 'nother Latin 'Hot Spot'

A new group has been instituted which is known as the "Circulus Latinus Interretialis." It is intended for all interested in speaking Latin who have access to Skype. Mari- Vai! This is great news. I need a little more practice but I will be definitely taking advantage of t...

Salve mi Flavi! I am glad you had such a good trip. I see you too were bit by the Rome bug. Be warned, once you visit...you have to go back. After my first visit, I was back again in less than a year. The family and I are planning a trip there for next Thanksgiving. You may be a little far...

Ita mi Ioh, I believe the new citizens were only supposed to be enrolled in only 8 of the 35 tribes, thereby limiting their voting power which as you can imagine was to the satisfaction of the optimates. Cinna and Marius had other plans in order to increase their clientele and popular power. Unt...

The 35 Voting Tribes

Salvete Omnes! As part of a new project I am working on, today I was doing some research into the composition of the 35 voting tribes and was fascinated by some of the more obvious and overlooked aspects. As always, I highly value your opinions. 1. The composition of the tribes as they vot...

Translating Movie/TV Scripts to Improve Conversational Latin

Salvete Omnes- As I have stated before even though I can read almost any Latin put down in front of me, I have a difficult time with forming my own sentences. I have recieved a lot of good advice from many of you in this forum, so I wanted to share a little tip that I have been using with great ...

I have just this morning found some interesting literary evidence supporting the stripe over the shoulder theory. Ovid, Tristia Book IV.X "The years slipping by with a silent step, my brother and I assumed the toga that meant more freedom, and our shoulders were covered by the purple o...

Mi Mari- Excellent observations, thank you. In addition to the problem of one shoulder oftern covered in sculptures, the other problem is that the stripes were sewn in, rather than over the tunics, so they wouldn't show up on a sculpture, I have found some paintings that seem to support the...

Placement of the Stripe(s) on the Tunica Laticlavia

Salvete Omnes! I am confused over the proper placement of the stripe (or stripes) on the tunica laticlavia. For those unfamiliar, the tunica laticlavia was the tunic worn by the Senatorial class. It is distinguished from the tunic of the equestrian class (tunica angusticlavia) by the size and p...

Why Were No New Praetors Added Between 197-81 BC?

The Question ========== While doing research into the role and functions of praetors during the times of the republic, I continually found myself coming back to the question of why were no new praetors added between 197 – 81 BC during one of Rome’s greatest periods of expansion? Before proposin...

Looks like Roman realism strikes again. A coin of Mark Antony depicts Cleopatra as no raging beauty. Judge for yourself at http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/europe/02/14/cleopatra.coin/index.html This has been generating a lot of discussion. Despite the considerations that a 2000+ year old coi...

Salvete Iterum Omnes! I wanted to see if there was further interest in a wiki for the SVR. Other than noster Marius, no one else has requested access to experiment with Ancient Ways. Is anyone else interested in getting access to try it out? if so, send me a PM. Do you have further input on...

Great thread! Here are the origins of Publius Nonius Severus: I found my Romanitas in about 2001. I soon realized I wanted a Roman name but didn't finally decide what it should be until finally joining the SVR...so it was an intermittent journey of about five years. I wanted something authen...

You may also find useful Gary Brueggeman's Roman Map Website . Gary is famous for his CAD renderings of the Roman Army and he has an equally impressive map web site. Mind you, he doesn't make the .dwg files available, but the image renders are to scale and coordinated. Make sure you click on bui...

Gaining Wider Exposure for the SVR
