I've got to disagree with you on Leo's acting performances, Quintus. I thought he did a great job in The Departed for instance. Orlando Bloom on the other hand hasn't proven himself so far. The only movies in which he was "ok" were the LOTR ones. I didn't really like him in Pirates of t...

Salve Mari, Couldn't agree more with what you said. Besides, I doubt a lot of those advertisements actually help because a lot of people I know have AdBlock installed. I installed it only recently and being able to visit sites without all the annoying promotions, banners, etc... was very enjoy...

Political significance of the Rubicon?

Salvete omnes, My brother (not Draco, the other one) has recently finished writing an article on the wikipedia about the influential prefect Seianus . The part about the praetorian guard sparked the following discussion in the talk page of another article: This article, and several othe...

Salve, I recall reading a story back in my first year of latin involving a Roman wedding. There was also someone who commented on the use of the ringfinger to wear the ring. Apparently, they wear the ring on that particular finger because of a very small, fine nerve that was directly connecte...

Salve Wes, While I won't be able to visit (living in Belgium and all that) I might be able to give you some tips. I attended a similair event a couple of years ago and I'll give you some examples of the most popular stands at the event. The board games stand with games such as Paard van Tr...

Salve Flavi, So the question now is what sort of things would the Roman of old have carved on his signet ring? Something holy perhaps? A depiction of Jove, Minerva, Mithras, Isis or Christ perhaps? Should one take an image from everyday life, or perhaps something to signify their loves, or occu...

Salve Flavi, In the Roman Republic, (before 44 BC), by law only citizens could wear rings. And a male citizen could only wear one ring, and that ring was made of iron. In the early empire only Patricians, (the upper class of citizens), could wear gold rings. Other citizens and freemen could wear...

Lost techniques

Salvete omnes, in a discussion concerning so called "lost techniques" such as the building of the Pyramids, the Nazca lines, forging of certain steels and other arts, there was mention of something that piqued my interest. There was mention of a primitive "steam machine" th...

Salvete omnes, I've got another "How did they build the Pyramids" article for you all. Perhaps I should round up some of the most prominent theories and update my essay on the 7 World Wonders. Should be an interesting read. This particular theory states that the Pyramids may have bee...

Scars, spoils and splendour.

Salvete omnes, Allow me to quote a member of a newslist I'm subscribed to: I received the introductory brochure to the new magazine "Ancient Warfare" and found its special article "Scars, Spoils, and Splendour" fascinating. It gave a number of interesting examples of how &...

Salvete, My views on 300: There are several things that I didn't like about it. One of them was the constant introducing of new monsters. I could stand one behemoth fighting them, but then there was a rhino, the Immortal and some weird guy who had blades for arms. And what was the deal with th...

Roman Legion Essentials

Salvete omnes, I've been given a question by my History professor that needs answering. I know SVR isn't going to "do my homework" but that's not what I'm about to ask. Each student in our group has been assigned a question varying from roman customs, treatment of the slaves to writi...

300

Salvete omnes,

Anybody gone and see it yet? I doubt it's accurate historically speaking, but it might just nudge some people into reading up on Greek culture.

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about (apart from a shame on you); click here.

Valete bene,

Salve Mari, It appears I was able to nudge Atticus back to SVR long enough to contact you it seems. He is however, like you said, very busy so I think it's going to be a while until we hear from him again. One person you can take of the list is Tarquinius Dionysius, he doens't want to be a mem...
