Salvete,

The same goes for Atticus and me...about spending time at the coast I mean, not at Ariadne's appartment, Draco might frown upon that 8)

Salve Draco,

No, Mencius decided not to. So it should be Collegium Militarium again.

Salve Attice,

Do you know of any other attestations ?


According to my dictionary, Horatius should have used it, but I couldn't find Quiris at Perseus either. Other than that, I've no idea.

Salvete, Concerning Quirites , there was a discussion about it recently on Latinae ( http://www.societasviaromana.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=841 ) Let me quote myself: As for Quirites, there actually is a singular form, but it's rarely used. Just like castrum and moenium, ...

Salvete, I think Ericius means the reasons that Bill was talking about: June 22, 168 BC is the date usually seen in the English-speaking world; elsewhere, the date is usually given as Sept. 3, 172, and for good reasons. Erici, you can click on the "for good reasons" part in Bill's po...

Salvete, Yes, valde means very and can be used with both verbs and adjectives. Valde amabant matrem - They loved their mother very much Hoc valde iucundum est - That is very pleasant But still, I think a superlative was used more often than the construction with valde . ...

Hello Bill !

Good to see you back, and with the Strategemata no less, splendid ! This means my printer will have to do a night shift :wink:

Any plans for putting up Poluainos as well ?

Salvete, Personally, I think morality is a construction of the mind and based on education and personal experiences, rather than on DNA. If you would have picked me up at birth and switched me with an Inuit baby, then, following your earlier example, I would now find it normal to push old men...

Salvete,

Here's a link to the story, not a whole lot of new information (though they mention a possible population of thousand, not ten thousand, Draco), but it has a picture ! :wink:

Dear Lord, I could barely answer a few of them, some interesting things though, aaah, so much more to learn... :wink:

Do you know why the Praetorian Guard used a scorpion as a symbol ? I didn't know this.

Roman town in Gloucestershire

Salvete, I just read a small article stating that a Roman town had been found beneath a farmhouse in Gloucestershire. They don't know the name of the town yet, but appearantly they have already uncovered a city gate, a city road and several buildings. There was nothing else in the article though...

Salve Mari, No need to question Draco about this, as I was the one who made this change. I've recently gone over all Latin used on our site and forum, because I think it's important for a Societas such as ours to use Latin correctly when we use it. This doesn't mean that I demand everyone to ...

Salve Tergeste, Other examples are castra and moenia , both probably come from an older singular form (in this case castrum and moenium ), but are almost always used in their plural form. As for Quirites , there actually is a singular form, but it's rarely used. Just like castrum and...
