I'd welcome all past magistrates to return as Senatores, instead of Magistrates.

I guess that my question made it clear that I was looking for female versions of gladiator types so the meaning stays the same because it still refers to the "profession", i.e. a male gladiator or a female gladiator. Yes, yes, I know, I know. I was referring to this...when you asked if ...

Mari, yes, they have different meanings, just as I said. However, decurio is still masculine, and decuria is still feminine.

Come to think about it, decurio could be feminine...

Ditto. It's murmillo. In antiquity, you do have some words that end in -o and a feminine version ending in -a, but they have different meanings. I can't think of one off the top of my head, though. I remember! Decurio/decuria (mostly because I've been elevated to the decuria prima in the Sodal...

Mari! Drats, I should have thought of this ages ago. It's a well, well deserved honor.

You gave me a fright, Timave! I was certain that Saturnus had lacked sculptures. Cronus, on the other hand, was depicted somewhat in Greece. The first you rightly mentioned Punic influence, since the God is actually Baal-Saturn, i.e. Baal who was recognized by the Romans as being equivalent to Satur...

Before Hellinization, Saturnus, all deities, in fact, didn't have busts. I do not ever recall seeing a bust or sculpture of any kind of Saturnus. He, with numerous other gods, weren't popular sculpture items, or at least Classicists never identified any with them. I can't even recall any wall painti...

Perhaps I should have made it clearer what I liked about it, what it did, instead of the negative things. I'll expand a bit in my revision (I needed to add references anyway).

Did you read the whole thing, mi Mari? Don't be off-put by the first sentence. It really was a mediocre account of the history of Latin literature even in context. However, I do have some very positive things to say about him: I found the introduction (not the preface, which is separate) to be r...

I want to further mention that I fully endorse Quintus Servius Priscus as rogator, and hope that in his name my once held vision for the Societas is actualized. Best of luck to you, amice.

I'm afraid, to the disappointment of some here, so I believe, that I also will not be running in the election. Though I may have served with modest distinction here before, I've far too much to be actively running (or helping to run) this website. I'll still be available, and will drop by every now ...

The ever-so-modest Marius of course brushes off the compliment. You may not be leaving SVR, but you've been invaluable these past two years in keeping our infrastructure from falling into ruins like the real Roma Antiqua.
