Still reading the new edition of the gladiator book by Marcus Junkelmann ("Gladiatoren - Das Spiel mit dem Tod") and comparing it to the old edition, but nonetheless I could give you a review which I will post in the Ludi section. The publisher told me that they are still negotiating about...

I do have many pics from my trips to Turkey and Rome but due to me not knowing how to handle this thing with webspace I can't upload them but have to dump them all on Marius to put them onto the SVR webspace. I think that would be too much for the poor guy, he's got enough to do with our page.

Salve Iohane, Well, hard to answer actually: As for Religio Romana I do have a little altar with figurines of lares and a Nemesis statuette, and a chalice for incense. I don't have a proper lararium yet but am thinking of constructing one but only together with the help of my boy friend. Besid...

Re: Purposefulness?

((((((((((((( P*A*U*L*E !!! ))))))))))))))) There He Is!!! EVOE!!! Mi Aelia, didn't they play music during the ludi? If so, I'd say that amphitheatre has been at least 70% restored to its original purpose; if there must be 'beef' involved, we could always put on a barbeque. <g...

Maybe it could be used for something else as well, i.e. its original purpose :P

How to become a gladiator ;-)

Salvete Omnes, I start a new thread because several posted question about me doing gladiatura so I'll try to answer Valerius Claudius' questions which he posted in the Ludus Nemesis First Gig thread here as good as possible: This is an interesting question - how, where, with whom does one...

There used to be a very good website about Roman Board Games but it seems to be offline :cry: But because Roman Board Games are my thing besides fighting as a gladiatrix (gladiators need something to do when not training or fighting 8) ) I delved into the matter of board games. I have copied t...

I chose my name when registering with the SVR and picked Cleopatra because it's my cat's name. So it was something I had some connection to. Aelia just sounded nice to me, it could have been anything else actually. Since I started with gladiatorial reenactment I chose also an arena name which you...

Salve Cleopatra, I think your scutum is smaller than a legionary one. And of course it would be, because gladiatorial equipment was made to favour spectacularity. Vale, Livia Salve Livia, Here's the link Marius was talking about where you can find a picture of me in gladiator gear. http:...

Ok. I'll express myself more precisely. Concretely I find the big square scutum not suited to individual fight. It's very good when you're in line, or when doing a testudo, but it's too heavy to do anything much with in a duel. I fight as a provocatrix and therefore am equipped with gladius...

Salvete Cleopatra Aelia et Alde Mari, actually my problem with re-enactment is place-specific. Strangely enough, there are no legions in Budapest (though there are at least three in Hungary). There are gladiators, but I feel it's beneath my dignity as a free person and roman citizen to be a gladiat...

I do reenactment which involves fighting - I am a gladiatrix which is authentic while we have no proof that female legionaries existed and hence it is difficult to get accepted in any reen...

Article about Ephesos on Livius.org with my Pics

Avete Amici, I'm sure you know about Jona Lendering's site Livius.org. Since I know Jona personally from two RAT meetings we talked about my visit to Ephesos in 2005 and I promised him to send him pics of the gladiator reliefs I had taken there. I feel very honored that he put my three photos up ...
