Salvete iterum, Marce, Mari et alii

I would like to get things going, amici. This warrior is anxious to set up camp. Question is, where will we do that? In Germania, the East, or in Roma Mater? And under which legion will we be marching?

To arms, my friends!

Salvete, mi Orce

I knew I had to add smileys in my post... I was aware that the Greecs never set foot on Scotland, but it was just to introduce the man's name.

Nevertheless, thanx for the additional info, my friend :wink:

Aeneas in Scotland?

Salvete omnes Did Aeneas ever come across Scotland? One might think so after seeing one of Rick Stein's cooking programs. He was up in the highlands to visit an organic breeding farm of Highland cattle, and the farmer's name was... Aeneas. What a mighty name for such a proud Scotsman. Iu...

Salvete iterum Since we are talking about languages in Gladiator, there is one other instance where a language other than Latin is used. Right before the recreation of the battle of Zama, When Proximo is bargaining for a better price, his partner in conversation, the red wigged dude, greets an...

Roma victrix, dammit :evil: :wink:

Roma victor (est) sounds a bit awkward, if you ask me. (and so you did)

Mi Draco, As you may know, history in general is my thing. And when I was young, I Have had an Egytian phase for several years. (followed by a romano-greec one, and now an oriental one,...) And I agree with you on the fact that Egypt differs greatly from black Africa. Your analysis about the S...

* Now alert and enthousiastic, Mencius would like to extend his regards to PD Mus, for organising such zappy games* What a fine display of swordsmanship, what mastery in the art of the bow! How fortunate am I to have witnessed this... Alas, now my Classics await me for further pondering. But I am...

I agree that it is not a boring activity. Because, when you think about things of the past, or about meaning of life, it has some repercussions on the things that lie ahead, too. And should one find that boring, why bother and live on? A bit short and radically expressed, but that is my view o...

Thanx, Orce!

I will certainly make the best of it. But those professors are giving us a hard time. Last Wednesday, I took my translation exam on Classical Chinese; It was so much that one of my collegues passed out. Not very healthy, those little tests...

Salve Valeri

Cantonese? I bow down humbly at your feet. I mean, Cantonese has 9 tones... And I am having a hard time as it is with the 4 tones of Mandarin. But then again, I don't have a Chinese girlfriend (yet :wink: )

Salve, mi Orce Count me in. I will cover chinese religion. Which form or aspect, that I haven't decided yet. Probably Taoist pantheon, maybe the controversy of confucianism being a religion or not,... I'll see. But you will have to wait another week, for I am still retaking exams. Iubeo ali...

Is boredom a necessity to come to philosophy?

Salvete omnes I thought this was a nice question for you all. Why did I ask it? If I look at a philosophical dictionary (which my paper is feeding us with), the impression is given that Romans, contrary to the Greecs, did not indulge in philosophy because they found it was boring. There are so...

Salvete, mi Draco et Romule The 'normal' thing would be the other way round indeed. Most people tend to feel depressed in winter, due to the lack of sunshine. If one is experiencing the opposite, it is not a bad thing. One who is orient-minded, like me, might explain it through yin and yang theor...

Salvete iterum! Sunzi's classical text is a strategy manual. Therefor, any figures he gives will be exaggerated. Remeber that in ancient Chinese history, war was more like a show than real batlle. If there was a conflict, the nobles would assemble their warriors, and go out to meet in the fie...
