Looking for Roman Isis material

Salvete, I am beginning to rebuild my old Templvm Isidis website. I lost several of the old images I had there. If anyone here has images of GRAECO-ROMAN Isis statues, frescos, etc that you would like to share, please notify me! I am especially on the lookout for a picture of a marble head o...

I'm coming in late tothis, Iknow. But I personally am OK with whatever calendaryou adopt. As for whether or we should observe nefas, fas, et al. how would this really affect us? Since SVR does not play being a country, it really does not seem like too much public business occurs. As long as...

Thanks for the information! I always did wonder a bit at that. On the subject of names, I kind of miss Fimbria myself...not that there is anything wrong with Peregrinus. But it was your original name. And as an aside....I always thought it the height of popousity to deliberately choose a his...

Sulla dropped out rather abruptly as I remember. I was already gone, but still kept in touch with him by email some. Then, he vanished abruptly. Not just from NR,but from the world it seems. Would someone as involved as he just drop out? I can't believe it myself. My guess, {and it is only...

Re: Rank

More hierarchies. Reminds me of that short lived NR-ite "Maximus Ultimus Superbus". Caesar was simply Caesar. He made it a grate name and lasting title. I find the post count to be impressive, even inspiring. Ericius. My favorite NR gens name was the Gens Dementia. But on the...

Salve Marius! "Only Man has excused himself from the natural order; we call that "free will". I would ask how man could have excused himself from the natural order if he did not have freewill. If we were not free, then all our behavior, including our worst behavior, must be dete...

Marius, Have you heard or read anything more about the Lupercal cave? I came across some other views by some classicists that this may not be the Lupercal after all. At least one thinks it it only a private dining room. I guess we will know more if/when the rubble is finally cleared out so t...

Another viewpoint

Salve Orcus, First, I think I need to disagree about something you said. The Christian devil is not quite the same as the Persian one. Christian's have always spoken of the devil as a fallen angel, not as some kind of equal but opposite deity. This is because evil is really seen as a spoiled o...

Seconding the Mons Aventinus Suggestion

I already posted this in the Roman Outpost... Wow...you guys were not joking. I visited Mons Aventinus and was IMPRESSED. I don't entirely have the hang of it yet, but with Marius' help I did set up in an insula in Trans Tiberim. Look me up in the Vicus Gemini. {On a histoprical note, I discover...

American Idol {A Short Poem}

AMERICAN IDOL, by Marcus Lupinius Paulus

Soon it will be eight o'clock
when American Idol's on
The stage is full of hopeful youth
singing their favorite songs
One will walk away with joy,
the others will leave in tears
But I will not be watching,
for that crap tortures my ears!

Do you have a place where you can post your pictures with captions? I would like to see them. And did you get any pictures of pretty Italian girls?

Some thoughts

Salvete Omnes, Mari, good to see you. I know I have not been around for a good long while, and that this conversation is old. But here are a few thoughts of mine. I frankly do not buy the argument this anonymous article. The substance of it is old though. If I remember well, the "Jes...

Salve Draco! Well, if you ever do decide to rewrite it, be sure to post it here somewhere. I remember another thing we were doing was creating a tradition in OP fiction for Cassius to be killed. Cassius was already dead at the beginning of your story, and he was killed by another Draco {not...

Salve Curio! No problem, and no offense taken. I don't blame you for thinking that actually. :D I've just been working, getting bossed by the Imperatrix {Latin for "wife"} and hanging out in the Roman Outpost, renewing a friendship with Aldus Marius, getting to know Piscinus and Ericius...

Bodies Falling

Hey Mari, The Ides of March resignations actually had a bad effect on Draco's efforts, for they forced him to change his story line. A Nova Roma based fiction of course uses Nova Roma members as characters, and when a bunch of people resigned, Draco was forced to somehow get rid of the character...
