Duh Quiz

And the "Duh" does apply. The first few results sit well with me. I've probablly osaked up some of the MAhayan from my father. The "mainline Prot" has me wondering about something. And Catholic way at the bottom. I liked not having any jehovah Winess in my ...[?], but bei...

Incorrectum Amice

It is you I worry about, O Fanged One. You read the list more than you bark. Which is okay. But I keep worrying some miscreant animal control prefect might have netted you.

notes for Bohec's the Roman Imperial Army

I just transcribed some of my notes on this book. One problem with the book is that the translations, French to English and Latin to English are not constent. The credits say they were done by a corporation. There are at least two styles of translation evident with the Latin and, I assume, the Fr...

Religio while in the Military

I realize this reply may be too late to help, not knowing when you were mustering in, but you might get a chance to look at the forum some time. I was on a ship (USN 61-65). I kept my beliefs pretty much in my pocket, but then I keep just about all of me to myself. Maybe it was the shipboard e...

Re: No togas in the Forum

I don't know about while wearing an Imperial toga, but a group of Senators had no trouble assaulting a certain Dictator per Perpetua while wearing the late Republican style toga. Ericius =({ "] Salvete, amici Romani! A couple of years ago, several Novaromani from Europe and the US met in R...

Fowler, W. W. (1899) The Roman Festivals of the Period of th

I just wanted to say that the Fowler book has recently been republished in trade paperback format. Costs less than an 1899 original, and much less fragile.

Re: Question of a Legion

Recruiting The age for enlistment naturally varied through the periods of Roman history. Here are some numbers that I’ve come across. I’ve been reading some Livy this past week and I noted, though did not write the note down, that in one part of the early Hannabalic War the senate authorized e...

Banner 3

Late comer that I am, I like the Roman Red banner. The color of Romeis red. IMnsHO. So far as regions and provinciae banners go, I think the suggested general patterns give an idea to work with, like the old British Commonwealth flags all being something with the Jack in the corner. The banners ...

-The Jews in the Roman World- by Michael Grant

I know some people have issues with the late Mr. Grant. Some f those are his accuracy, or degree there of; I think others object to his works basically being for popular consumption. Though I do wish there were a true popular interest in Roman history. Al that is beside the point. I got this boo...

Books

I've just finished Barry Cunliffe's -The Extraordianry Voyages of Pytheas the Greek- ~~~ Interesting, informative, though wandering around almost as much as Pytheas did, and I've added another name to my list of famous ancient jerks, Strabo. But that may be a personal thing [damn landlubber]. Aft...

What are the reasons? I can conjecture but I'll stifle myself and just ask the question.

Words

I can not help you with the Latin, and I will not be helpful with the sources for the references I am going to make, but this is a subject that I spent some thougth on over the years.

ars dialectica !?!

I think this verse gives all away. If not a sophomor, than quite -ish. Nihilism, fads and all. A damn good swat at composing in Latin though, whatever the faults in fine points. 11. Vivat ars dialectica, mors religionis; nam quae ratio construit, ratio ipsa destruit. Vivat ius negati...

Comparison

The faults that you cite in Caesar, how different was the conduct of his contemporaries? Caesar is the Roman whose militatry memoires we have, others of his period are second hand accounts, and Caesar's are [almost] extent, so much weight is given them. That said I've wondered at some of his lapse...

SF & Ancts

I'll put in a word for Daivd Drake's Roman stories. They are few in number, that not being what the masses hanker for. Ranks of Bronze is a good one, and perhaps his first novel. Basically it is about some of Crassus's legionaries who are picked up wholesale by aliens who need experts in low te...

What Time Zone?

Salvete.

What time zone is this board set to? I just posted to the Religio board at 09:20 Pacific Time, 18:20 Rome Time Feb. 5, and the Religio board timed it as 01:20 Feb. 6. I've noticed this for a while and thought I'd ask the question this time.

Valete.
