ADDITION: - Hoplomachus and Thraex have been adapted in their stats. - To get rid of the strong hoplomachi, all hoplomachi will fight in a knock-out combat in the next Ludi. They will fight until only one hoplomachus is left, and this one will receive a special prize: liberty. He will no longe...

ROUND-UP

Salvete! With a loud trompet sign the jury enters the arena. The head of the jury comes forward and speaks out with a loud voice: "We have seen some great fights in these two days of fighting! Now it is time to honour the winners! There are various prizes, according to the gladiator's performa...

Salve Attice!

Can you scan the coin and post it here? This should work with a normal flatbed scanner (I scanned my own coins and it works perfectly).

It seems indeed a rather strange coin... I would however like to see it, if possible.

Salvete!

I thought this was an appropriate question to put here: where does the name Aprilis come from?

I have read suggestions like 'aperire' ('to open') but I can't find any clear answer to this question. Maybe someone on the forum here?

Salvete! Some additions: As Curio pointed out to me, in the test fight "some of the Hoplomachus stats and moves were taken from the Eques". This is because I was wrong in my first draft of the rules. So everything in the rules section is correct, but I forgot to adapt the test fight. No harm d...

Addendum:

You can see some images of the gladiator types on this page (not always very accurate, but until I find some better images these will have to be used).

Salve Tiberi! It makes one wonder though, if that emperor had only ruled for two weeks, would he already have his own coin? It must take some time to forge it, no? Aha! Numismatics! My favourite domain :-) Very soon after this Domitianus was proclaimed emperor of the Gallic empire, mayb...

maar het woord 'dinar' komt volgens mij wel van 'denarius'. Kan de numismaat in ons gezelschap dat bevestigen ? You rang m'Lord? Dinar is inderdaad afgeleid van denarius , zoals het Engelse teken £ voor pond zou afgeleid zijn van het Latijnse woord libra . Ook heeft men geopperd dat ...

Salvete!

I recently rented the dvd with a miniseries called 'Julius Caesar' (directed by Uli Edel).

With a splendid Jeremy Sisto as Caesar, This was one of the best things on ancient Rome I had ever seen.

Definitely worth a try!

Gegroet!

Voor Mencius en waarschijnlijk ook Atticus lukt het, wat met de anderen?

Waarschijnlijk wordt het dinsdag 24 februari (volgende dinsdag dus).

Scorpiones? Lupus? Romulus? Anderen?

We gaan in ieder geval met de geïnteresseerden!
