Thanks. I did find a more recent paper on Domitia Longina (2002), which also mentions only the boy. Jona Lendering's website identifies this child as Titus Flavius btw, but I was under the impression that his name had not survived?

Children of Domitian?

I'm currently doing some research on Domitian, and right now am slightly confused over whether Domitian ever had a daughter. Several websites seem to state that there was a certain Domitilla who, like his only son, died in her early youth. Brian Jones' The Emperor Domitian so far only mentions the...

Cleopatra Aelia wrote:This is a detail of the Ara Pacis which you can see in a recently opened new museum. When I was in Rome for the first time six years ago it was closed so I was delighted to see it this time.

The artistry on this relief is quite simply astounding. Thanks for sharing.

Salve, Cleopatra Aelia,

Be sure to take plenty of pictures :) I'm always interested to see new photographs of Roman ruins, artifacts, or inscriptions. Hope you enjoy your trip.

Online translation of Pliny's Panegyricus?

Salvete omnes,

As the title indicates, I'm looking for an online translation of Pliny's Panegyricus. Only Latin texts seem to be available currently.

Good to hear the operation went well. I'm sure there is a Latin expression appropriate for this occassion but I'm not familiar with it, so English will have to suffice :)

So, best of wishes and I hope you have a speedy recovery!

Alma-Tadema and the accession of Claudius

Salvete omnes, As I mentioned in my previous discussion on The Triumph of Titus , Alma-Tadema seems to have had a particular fascination with the accession of emperor Claudius, a subject which he painted in at least three different versions. Over the next two days I want to briefly discuss these...

Re: Les Empereurs

Moreover, as I recall (I have to go back to an authority and get my recollections straight) he took an oath never to execute members of the Senate, quite unlike most of the emperors, as it seems to me. Indeed he did (Dio, 68.2.3), but this should not be a surprise considering he owed his accessio...

New film production in the works: Pompeii (2009)

Link to the IMDB page here . Sounds promising, except that Roman Polanski has just pulled out of the project, and they're going to cast Orlando Bloom and Scarlett Johansson in the lead roles. They may be good-looking, but I'm not entirely convinced of their acting abilities so far... Anyone r...

No information on costumes as far as I can tell but still an essential read:

Most capable: Augustus. Quite simply one of the most brilliant and influential politicians in the history of the western world.

My favourite: Probably Tiberius. The man is a complete tragedy, and never ceases to fascinate me.

Most entertaining: Heliogabalus, without a doubt. :D

Salvete omnes, I'm just browsing around the old archives and peforming necromancy on a few topics here and there :). As for this poll, I decline to vote because I don't think any of these emperors were truly "evil". As has been pointed out, defining the term "evil" is problema...

I really don't like Gladiator anymore. Initially though, I thought it was great; a nice throwback to the sword-&-sandal epics from 50s. These days I can't help but cringe at 1) the cheesy acting, 2) the overblown Zimmer score, 3) the drab cinematography, and worst of all 4) the lack of histori...
