Salve Orce,

There's a well-informed and quite extensive article on the Pelasgians on the Wikipedia :

Grief in Roman art

Salvete omnes,

For the cover page of my thesis report, I am looking for an image of a Roman artwork that shows a person suffering from grief, or something similar. Does anyone here have a suggestion ?

Salve Locate, Maybe it does sound a bit frightning, but I think it is. Is our life nothing more than waiting for death to come? Life is nothing in itself , except its naked biological facts that are shared by all human beings. It is only what you think about it and what you want to do with it...

Gentleman's library? I understand there is one of those at Herculaneum. At the Villa of the Papyri, on rolls of papyrus underneath a layer of carbonized filth and ash, is supposed to lie the remains of an Epicurean's library. They're already scanning the remains and some of the secrets contained wi...

Salve P. Scriboni Allow me to repeat you : w00t !!! To name but one thing (of course I'd like to see a complete ancient gentlemen's library being unearthed one day !), I'd very much like to find more texts by the great 5th century sophists : as much as Socrates, they laid the basis for classi...

If you want to know her explanation, I could look it up in the book at the university library. Or I could simply ask the author, as I will attend a lecture of her about the pontifices next month (that way, I'll have an intelligent question at hand already :wink: ). I asked prof. Van Haeperen a...

I'm in the middle of writing my thesis, and after that I have exams, so for me it wouldn't be possible for the coming months :(.

Romeinse villa onder basiliek Tongeren

BRUSSEL - Archeologen hebben in de ondergrond van de basiliek in Tongeren verschillende Romeinse bouwresten opgegraven, waaronder intacte stukken pleisterwerk. Dat geeft hoop dat de ondergrond eindelijk iets zal prijsgeven over hoe de overgang tussen het Romeinse Rijk en de Middeleeuwen in Tongeren ...

Reflections on democracy, ancient and modern

Salvete, Below I copied an essay by Nobel prize winner José Saramago, originally published in Le Monde Diplomatique in August 2004. Besides being interesting to discuss in its own right, it also treats the historical - Greco-Roman - origins of our current political system. Valete, Q. Pompon...

Note the irony

Something that struck me while reading : In truth, O Erucius, you would have been a ridiculous accuser, if you had been born in those times when men were sent for from the plough to be made consuls. Certainly you, who think it a crime to have superintended the cultivation of a farm, would conside...
