I do not feel that the exam is accurate, how can you actually answer those questions and retain an accurate answer? It asks, "Are you anything but a Christian." Well, my answer is no, but I assume that it will take my answer to mean that I am a Christian. Am I wrong? I am against Christianity, but I...

Did the Greeks not have bisexual? I know Latin had cinaedus... But truly all are born bisexual at least to some degree. There exists no black or white but only shades of gray.

Odd, that site has many cognomina highlighted with references to people, but they forgot Publius Ovidius Naso.

Oh, and I think I've decided to go with Scerius, and maybe when I get powerful enough I'll add the agnomen Maxumus.

Homophobia mostly from the Christiani. Everyone knows the cinaedi were respectable as long as you're not the bitch.

What about Scerius, or maybe Scerio? Do they allow play on words in Latin?

What's the Cornelian versus Dionysian empire? I took it that this was the Dionysian empire?

Cognomen

I used to go with Maxumus, but 1 everybody thought I should have spellt it Maximux and 2 I can't have it hear. Any suggestions? What? You actually want me to descr...

Actually, it is a common mistake to think that ein Berliner only refers to the "donut" - it in fact is correct, though the usage is somewhat less common. I suppose it would be as a Brit asking for a fag when he means a cigarrette. In may confuse some people...

Of course, one could also assume that Ennius was near the end of his life when Bacc came about, so they were really contemporaries, with Ennius only being about 20 years older (consider when he started writing...) Look for Edward Courtney, Archaic Roman Prose, 1999. He provides some of the avail...

Thanks for the Lapis Niger, I was not aware of it.

As for rules and such, I noticed that Senatus Consultum de Baccanalibus appears much older than Ennius, cf. quom in Bacc. with cum in Ennius and the 'd' for certain ablatives in Bacc. but missing in Ennius.

Ancient Latin

Quintus Foro SPD: Wow, I'm surprised relatively few people go here. I guess most join textkit's site. Eheu! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here is proficient in ancient Latin. From what I gather from Baccanalibus, it is not the oldest text surviving, or there are still rules not present there?...

Consilium? Non habeo, at Ordonem hic quae amici mei activi sunt teneo. Nei intelligo "creaverunt istum imperatorem" - num nemo illem oditorem intellectorum supportat? Cogito vos scientes eratis, ne idiotas.
