I would be honoured to serve on the concilium were it to take place after 11 August, if I were to be asked, of course. If it happens before then, I will be unable to, since I will be travelling around Poland. I greatly regret that my access to a computer is so limited during this crucial time. ...

Salvete omnes, Apologies for my recent absence, I've been preparing for multiple activities, among them my forthcoming trip to Poland, for which I leave on sunday. I'll be there for a few weeks, returning on 11 August. When I do come back, I'll give my thoughts on the current discussions regard...

Salve Mari, Apologies for not updating, I considered this part of the story to belong to you and Draco - Curio is doing little at the moment apart from watching and listening. As for the next month, I'm afraid I will be unable to update... *Curio mysteriously signs off, pointing not quit...

Did I not reply the first time? Oops, my mistake. As I understand it - and bear in mind my Latin remains woefully unpolished - Agelastus means "he who does not smile" or something along those lines. A reference to my old nickname: "The champion of dead pan." :D As for laurels and cognomina ...

Speaking of Slavic words and holidays and such, in a couple of weeks I'm off to Krakow to pursue a burgeoning interest in the Polish language. Given that I still know almost nothing of Polish, it should be an interesting trip...

Heh as long as it's only mysterious cults, then I suppose it's ok.

I agree, the first two aren't bad. The third is tolerable, and the fourth and fifth are awful. Primarily because the author has the worst case of Caesar-worship ever. EVER. The sixth was a bit more fun because I got to see Caesar get violently assassinated, which I'd been looking forward to for ...

Salve Coruncani, Many thanks for your exposition on Fabius and Marcellus, I look forward to seeing the details! It's currently exam time, so my research on Sentius and Bruttius will have to wait. My exams finish in early June - after that I'll begin working on those two. Does anyone else ...

Salve Tiberi,

I will be there to assist the others consuming your excellent wine, but - what with it being exam time and all - I must pass up the opportunity to debate with the others - I will sit on the sidelines and listen in on this one.

Bene vale,
Marcus Scribonius Curio Agelastus.

Salvete omnes, Draco: Speaking as a pessimist, I don't think pessimism is a fear of life; merely a belief that life always has worse things to throw at you - a tendency to distrust, a tendency not to believe in the goodness of mankind - a tendency, in short, to look on the dark side of things. B...

I don't think life is simply a matter of waiting for death; it's a matter of diverting oneself from the prospect of death. Our entire life is a huge distraction, an attempt to save ourselves from the ignominy of boredom. Every time you play a sport or a game, every time you're reading a book, watc...

Attice, please report your views on Fox's book - I have it on my bookshelf, but it's unlikely to get read soon - just too many other books that need to be read... I'm currently reading the sci-fi series "Illuminatus", "Basic Polish: a Grammar and Workbook", "Understanding International Relations"...

Curio smiled slightly at Marius' tale - he'd thought Draco the only one with political connections. "Very well then - let us enter." Curio dismounted, and looked expectantly at the others. It might have occurred to the others that he was a little more hesitant than usual, that he let Marius and D...

Salve Draco, the only Glaucus - or Glaukos as I knew him - I'm aware of is the man fighting at Troy. According to Homer he was actually one of leaders of the Lykians or one of the other Asia Minor states, along with his relative Sarpedon. Both of them died at Troy, I forget exactly how though. ...

Salvete omnes,

Just a quick note to say that I'm almost recovered from the hepatitis. I still don't have much time, because I'm frantically trying to catch up, but I'll try to pop in from time to time.
