Salve Draco! Great to see you back again!

I don't suppose you have any interest in running the chariot races again? It was one of the most fun things we've ever done.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to plug my favorite museum, in Aquileia, Italy which was a (if not the) major center for the production of signet rings in the peninsula.

Salve Flavi, M. Horatius Piscinus was in exactly your situation when he served in the U.S. Army. Some time ago he wrote a moving piece about standing in formation in basic training when the drill sergeant sent the troops to religious services, "Catholics this way, Protestants that way"...

87%. I actually lost almost all my points in a single question, about where the bedrooms were located. I only chose the right answer after eliminating the other three first.

Results of the Census: The Census of the Societas Via Romana returned 62 sodales. The names of the current sodales are recorded on the Album Sodalium This is almost half less than the 121 sodales whose names were inscribed on the Album before the Census. To avoid alarm, it is worth pointing ...

By the way, I tried to follow through on my promise to send our poll results to Paris Hilton, but her site on "The Simple Life" had been removed because the program had been cancelled.

An even more advanced exercise is to try to translate song lyrics and poetry. The compactness of the forms makes the effort quite challenging!

Thanks Severe, I enjoyed reading it. Tell me, under what legal basis were citizens married to non-citizens (whether Latins or foreigners?) If a Roman citizen woman married a Latin, would she be subject to his paterfamilia powers? Would it be that she would be the owner of the household and he wou...
