Also, I can't confirm this, but I've heard/read numerous times now that Cleopatra was reportedly not even that attractive or beautiful. Her sexual renown allegedly had to do with her skill at fellatio. What's true of this?

Salve Tergeste, Sorry for the long wait for my reply. Who knows me personally will see that I am far from being politically correct. In fact, I've often been misunderstood because of it. I sometimes use gross statements for shock effect, and more than once people think I really mean it. Of ...

I agree. The other problem was that it was almost expected that the rector had to 'keep the collegium going'. I think that was a wrong attitude from the beginning. I think a collegium needs to develop spontaneously, through the initiatives of all its members, rather than through the focused effort...

Salve Calde,

Welcome to SVR!

I like your third design the best, and I don't have any problems with a specialised American design, it would be good if we were to have an American provincia. Nice work.

Optime vale,

Salve Tergeste, Wonderful topic, haha. I would also be tempted to say Messalina, but... there's a caveat, of course. Most Roman history, both during the Republic, the Empire and centuries after that up until the early 20th century, was men's business. Though one wouldn't say it today, the clas...

Salve Attice, Another question, one we've talked about already: how does one calculate the amount of people in the Roman Empire? I guess Roman citizenship was pretty well documented at the time, but how about slaves, mercenaries, merchants or illegal immigrants? Also, I would think many of the re...

I know that this might not be the topic to discuss this in, but if we're talking about SVR's history and some written record of it... I'd like to volunteer for that. Mus started an annales project some 2,5 years ago but it never got much further than SVR's foundation (which he was appropriately nagg...

Salvete viri,

Great ideas, I especially like the Latin t-shirt idea. In order to direct money to promoting ourselves, we'd need an SVR account though.

Salvete amici, I apologise for not having been here since mid-August, but then again from the onset I made it clear that I'll not be a figure in the frontlines in this episode. With that said, I'll give my opinion on this matter as briefly as possible. 1. On NR: I think NR is hampered by a f...

Salvete, I am not against a census, but mailing through the forum won't work: I think at least 1/3 forum members are not members of SVR. Added to that, there are still problems with the application form, and we might want to revise the webmail situation the officers of SVR are in (who checks thei...

Salve Mari, I just got back from the Czech Republic with Lucia's family, and I'll soon be studying for my final exam. I believe Lupus and Atticus have been away too, in the Ardennes. I guess not one explanation is the sole cause of declining activity, I think it's a mix of all, but for this pe...

Salvete, I voted uti rogas. As I also said to Atticus, if the concilium would need me to fill in a spot, I'll be there. But I think the composition of the concilium will be more important than its actual legality. Another matter: if the concilium meets or discusses, will these discussions be c...

It does say "augusticlavus", doesn't it? Or am I interpreting your sense of humour the wrong way :? ?

Thank you for your kind words. I think you have figured out exactly what I meant, even from my rambling, verbose postings written after 3am in the morning 8).

Retirement

Salvete omnes, Two months ago I made a posting in the Senate to apologise for my lack of involvement and activity this year: the ludi circenses have come to a halt, I'm not writing any substantial contribution anymore, and generally I haven't been here much. I would like to repeat that apology fo...

Salve Mari et Piscine, I agree with both of you. What I think is also a central problem to SVR is not, what we have considered in the past so often, how we define ourselves but rather what we DO. I was struck by this when I read an interview with a writer about the European Union. He said that...
