Absentiuuuuurgh

Salvete omnes, In a rare moment of lucidity, I have logged on to inform y'all why I've been so inactive the last week or two. Basically, it appears that I've contracted a viral form of hepatitis... So I'm afraid I will be almost/entirely silent for 1-5 weeks (gotta love those precise diagnoses) ...

Piscine, I like the time you proposed to link between America and Europe. What does everyone else think?

Salvete,

The authorisation was granted after Marius became Consul. I realise that they had the power to negotiate small contracts and such, but long-standing diplomatic treaties? Surely that would be the work of a Senatorial commission?

Diplomatic powers of generals in the field?

Salvete omnes, I've been reading Keaveney's "Sulla: the last Republican" recently, and he said something quite interesting; he said that, in the war against Jugurtha, Gaius Marius was given full diplomatic powers by the Senate to make a peace treaty with Bocchus of Mauretania. I've not heard of ...

Salve P. Scriboni,

Welcome to the Societas! It's good to see another Scribonian around. That Latin compendium sounds like an invaluable tool - in what other fields do your interests lie?

Bene vale,

Salvete,

Numeri, welcome to the SVR! As Piscinus mentions, there are plenty of colourful characters here to get to know. Where do your interests lie?

Piscine, am I that temperamental? :?

Bene valete,

Salve Mari!

Erm... Texian frontier? How do we relate that to the Roman world? :?

Well the flippant side of me suggests that * = asterisk, which would assume that the riddle was referring to the series of books. :lol:

As Marius made to leave, Curio put an arm on his shoulder, and gently turned him round. "Wait, mi Mari... Please wait." The tears on Curio's face remained a stark contrast to his complete lack of expression. "I'm sorry, amice. I find it difficult to talk of this. But perhaps I should answer y...

Salvete omnes, Lupe: Opinion is divided on just how well Jordan keeps up the pace, although most agree he fails to do so throughout the series. In my opinion, the first five books are excellent, the sixth isn't bad, the seventh is good, the 8th is poor, the ninth is good, and the tenth is appall...

Salvete Aldi et Lucia,

Congratulations on your new names!

(Would Aldi be the correct vocative, given the unusual nature of the name?)

Salve Draco,

This seems good. To a certain extent, it answers the concerns of those worried with the previous restructuring, without (as far as I can tell) raising new problems.

Salvete omnes, Philosophically speaking, it could be argued that just because you personally sympathise, relate and identify with a specific emperor does not mean that you are actually like him. In that respect, it does not matter that you particularly relate to Marcus Aurelius, or even think th...

Salve Lupe,

ah, that's a great series. Have you read it before? If not, you're in for many surprises... Not least of which that you have another nine books of the same size to read, and it's not even finished yet...

Salvete omnes,

Currently I'm reading James Minahan's "One Europe: Many Nations". A fascinating book, about the many different ethnic peoples of Europe. More relevantly, I'm making my way through Friedrich Munzer's great work also.

Salve Piscine, So how would you recommend that be done in the face of the financial problems of the last century BCE? Sulla had to raid the temples just to stay solvent, and the treasury for the rest of that century up until Augustus' time wasn't in brilliant condition. How could the Senate hav...

I'd love to be able to say it was a typo... but... it was actually one of my many deficiencies in Latin. :oops:
