I don't think that the book is available in an English translation. I noticed that only a few works will be translated, so I have a lot of English books as well as German ones and even a few French ones. Did you try to find it via Amazon or any other online bookstore by entering the name of the a...

I guess that my question made it clear that I was looking for female versions of gladiator types so the meaning stays the same because it still refers to the "profession", i.e. a male gladiator or a female gladiator.

Re: Julianus

Salve, Aule Flavii - Julian ! A favorite of mine, though I haven't read it in years. A teacher in high school, noting my interest in Rome as we went through "World History", suggested it to me. Ut vivat Iuliani anima. Vale. I loved reading that book as well. Also one of my...

Thanks for your swift answers, but I forgot another type for which I would like to know the female version and here I have no clue:

thraex

Would here the same rule apply as for murmillo that it stays the same and you could see it only if it is female or male when using an adjective?

Correct Female Versions?

I wonder if I got the following female versions right:

murmillo = murmilla
secutor = secutrix
hoplomachus = hoplomacha
retiarius = retiaria

Gratias tibi ago in advance for your help,

Just to make clear, I will not run for any office either. I had to resign from my last office and pass it to Quintus Servilius Priscus due to being to busy with running my own gladiator group. I'm off now to the next training session.

Re: Wow.

Imm-pressive! Is the armor iron or brass or - ? The helmet is made out of steel and the pectorale (breast plate) is made out of brass. Both items are custom made. Did you win in the games? I was just posing in that picture for the photographer of the German reenactor magazine "Karf...

I got some more pics of the Ara Pacis and wouldn't mind to let you have them for your purposes if you need them. Not that there are aleady as many published as for the Trajan's markets which I had suggested in my PM.

Impressions from Cleopatra Aelia's Rome Trip

Avete amici, Actually the first picture I'm trying to upload here is not from Rome actually but from Pompeii where we went to for just one day. That area is worth a longer visit though, esp. to visit the National Museum in Naples and the excavations at Herculaneum are on my wish list for another ...

The picture needs to be found on a website, otherwise it is not possible to attach any picture to a post. I don't have 'em uploaded to a website :cry: [/img]

I'm back already for quite a long time. It was a very nice trip and of course I took tons of pics, many of the Colosseum of course ;-) But also of the less-known Amphitheatrum Castrense which was a private amphitheater to the Emperors palace in the 3rd century. One day we went to Pompeii, and visite...

Salve Cepasacce,

Nice to see you here so I welcome you to this board.

Well, I doubt I'm the strongest imperium in the world, but at least I try to win all my fights :lol:

I wish you good luck that you can improve your Latin with the help of this forum.
