May 26, 2020

The Battle of Watling Street, (61CE). In this final decisive battle of Boudica’s revolt against Roman rule in Britain, a large British force was routed by the heavily outnumbered Romans, under the command of Gaius Suetonius Paulinus. The battle marked the end of resistance to Roman rule in southern Britain, which was to last until 410. When King Prasutagus of the Iceni died, he left his lands to be divided between his daughters and the emperor, Nero. However, the Romans ignored Prasutagus’s will and seized his lands, flogged his widow Boudica, and raped their daughters. While the Roman governor, Suetonius, was campaigning in Anglesey, Boudica led the Iceni in rebellion. She attacked Camulodunum (Colchester), where her troops slaughtered thousands and set fire to the temple of Claudius, killing those who sheltered inside. She then turned her attention on London, burning the city and killing anyone who could not escape. Suetonius gathered his forces, amassing around 10,000 men. Boudica’s rebel forces and Suetonius’s outnumbered but well-drilled army met on the Roman road called Watling Street, near Wroxeter in Shropshire. Roman rule in Britain was in the balance, so Suetonius had to choose his battleground carefully: a narrow gorge protected his flanks and a forest protected his rear. With open plains to the front, Boudica was forced to engage the Romans in a massive frontal charge that was funneled into a tight mass and cut down by volleys of javelin. Once the Britons were in disarray, Suetonius ordered his forces forward in typical Roman wedge-shaped formation. Despite their numbers the poorly armed Britons were no match for superior Roman discipline, armor, and weaponry. As the Britons retreated, the ring of wagons belonging to their families impeded their escape and they were massacred. Losses: According to Roman sources: Iceni, 80,000 men, women, and children; Roman Army, 400.

TR / EN Antik Roma seremoni arabasından bronz süsleme. İmparatorluk dönemi, MS 1.-2. yüzyıllar. Metropolitan Sanat Müzesi, New York. Medusa başı tasvirli, gümüş ve bakır kakmalarla süslenmiş bu ağır metal süs, muhtemelen geçit törenlerinde kullanılan bir seremoni arabasına (currus triumphalis) ait. 📸 burakl7l ____________________ Bronze ornament from a chariot pole. Roman culture, Imperial period, 1st–2nd century AD. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

With a capacity of up to 75,000 spectators, it is the most important Roman #amphitheater as well as the most impressive monument of ancient Rome that has survived, known throughout the world as a symbol of the city of Rome and Italy. Its construction was started by Vespasian in 72d.C. and inaugurated by Tito in the 80, with further changes made under Domitian's rule. The building forms an ellipse of 527 m of perimeter, with the axes measuring 187.5 and 156.5 m. The name "Colosseum" spread only in the Middle Ages and comes from the popular deformation of the Latin adjective "colosseum", meaning huge, colossal. ✤ ✤ ✤ #italy #italia #archeologia #archaeology #colosseo #amphitheater #amphitheatre #storia #history #archeologie #anfiteatroflavio #archaeological #imperioromano #arqueologia #patrimonio #coliseum #romanempire #artista #romanart #roma #arcoditrionfo #romanforum #ancientrome

May 26, 2020

👇Read on for more info👇 The Byzantine empire is what we call the Eastern Roman empire after the collapse of the West. They still called themselves Romans, all the way up to their eventual demise in 1453, despite many cultural shifts over time including speaking Greek instead of Latin. In the 7th century AD they were at war with the Sassanid Persians to the east, and under pressure from "barbarian" tribes to the north and west. By 615, the situation seemed hopeless, with the Persians having a clear upper hand. Silver was stripped from church roofs to make enough coins to meet the demands of war, and the Romans' desperation led them to mint the coins with the words "Deus adiuta Romanis", or "May God save the Romans" (they still generally spoke Latin in the 7th century). Eventually, in 628, the Sassanids were defeated. To commemorate this, a number of ornamental silver plates known as the David Plates were created, depicting David defeating Goliath (among other scenes from David's life) to mark the Romans defeating a much larger and more powerful foe. #byzantine #byzantium #rome #ancientrome #romanempire #persian #coins #historyfacts #history #ancienthistory #christianity #david #goliath #war #fact #facts #funfacts #didyouknow

May 26, 2020

#argomentodelgiorno Cesare oltrepassa il Rubicone: “Raggiunte le sue coorti sulla riva del Rubicone, fiumiciattolo che segnava il confine della sua provincia, si fermò un momento e, meditando sull’importanza di quella decisione, rivolto a chi gli stava vicino esclamò: “Per ora possiamo ancora tornare indietro, ma, una volta attraversato questo ponticello, tutto dovrà essere deciso con le armi!”. Mentre stava ancora esitando, ebbe un’apparizione. Un uomo di bellezza e di statura straordinaria apparve improvvisamente, sedendosi lì vicino a suonare il flauto. Dei pastori accorsero a sentirlo, e anche una frotta di soldati dai loro posti e alcuni trombettieri. Quell’uomo, presa la tromba a uno di questi, si slanciò verso il fiume e, suonando il segnale di battaglia con straordinaria forza, passò sull’altra riva. Allora Cesare ordinò: “Avanti, per quella strada sulla quale ci chiamano i prodigi degli dèi e l’ingiustizia dei nostri nemici. Il dado è gettato!”.” Svetonio . Il 10 gennaio del 49 a.C. Cesare oltrepassò in armi quel confine inviolabile. Questa sarà la prima mossa della futura guerra civile contro Pompeo. Gli studiosi si sono dibattuti sul significato dell’emblematica frase “alea iacta est”, infatti da una parte ci sono coloro che supportano la traduzione diventata ormai famosa “il dado è tratto” nel senso che ormai è stato lanciato ed i giochi son fatti, ma secondo altri sarebbe “iacta alea esto”, così come riportata alcuni autori antichi, traducibile con un “si lanci il dado” con una sfumatura di buon auspicio per la missione a cui si andava incontro. In ogni caso con quella mossa Cesare vinse la sua partita, mostrando le debolezze di una Repubblica ormai destinata a svanire.

Przydomki i imiona Rzymian?⠀ ⠀ W antycznym Rzymie do imienia (praenomen) i nazwiska rodowego (nomen) dołączył w I wieku p.n.e. przydomek (cognomen). Stało się tak, gdyż pod koniec istnienia republiki rody zaczęły się znacznie rozrastać. Przydomki początkowo przyjmowały jedynie rody patrycjuszowskie. ⠀ Pierwsze przydomki miały związek z głównymi zajęciami Rzymian w tych czasach. Przydomki nader często związane były z roślinami, co jedynie utwierdza nas w przekonaniu o rolniczym charakterze pierwotnego społeczeństwa rzymskiego. Na przykład ród Cyceronów swoją nazwę wziął od grochu (cicer), a Fabiuszy od bobu (faba). Jeszcze inne przydomki wiązały się z jakąś cechą charakterystyczną członka rodziny, np. Cincinnatus – „kędzierzawy”, Cato – „sprytny” czy też przydomek zabójcy Cezara – Brutusa, który oznacza „głupiec”. Przydomek wskazywać mógł także pochodzenie osoby lub wyróżniać jej cechy osobiste.... ⠀ Więcej: https://www.imperiumromanum.edu.pl/ciekawostka/przydomki-i-imiona-rzymian⠀ ⠀ #imperiumromanum #historia #ciekawostkihistoryczne #rzym #ciekawostki #starozytnyrzym #instagood #SPQR #instaboy #antycznyrzym #rzymianie #antyk #romans #ancientrome #beautiful #livinghistory

May 26, 2020

Le Terme di Caracalla sono uno dei più famosi e meglio conservati complessi termali di epoca romana, secondo alcuni pianificate dall’imperatore Settimio Severo e completate nel 216 d.C dal figlio e successore Caracalla. Ispirate alle scomparse terme di Traiano, furono realizzate in un quartiere povero di Roma e fu necessario sbancare un’ampia area a sud verso il colle Aventino. Per rifornire le grandi termedell'acqua nesessaria al loro funzionamento, fu ideato e creato un ramo supplementare dell’Acqua Marcia, la cosiddetta "Aqua Antoniniana". La pianta rettangolare tipica di questi edifici presenta le caratteristiche delle grandi terme imperiali, ovvero luoghi in cui, oltre ai bagni termali, lo sport e la cura del corpo si tenevano riunioni politiche, conversazioni e studi, ciò che noi oggi considereremmo un luogo di aggregazione sociale. La capienza del sito quotidiana era di circa ottomila persone. #terme #roma #anticaroma #rome #ancientrome #termedicaracalla #romacaputmundi #adelevcastellano #libri #romanzi #romanzostorico #romacittaeterna #imperoromano termedicaracalla

Giorno dei Pozzi Sacri Resiste ancora oggi una curiosa ricorrenza: quella di onorare i Pozzi Sacri, ovvero quei pozzi che grazie alle loro acque un tempo era possibile abbeverare gli animali, le persone e annaffiare i campi. Una funzione tutto sommato semplice, ma che all'epoca era vista come una vera e propria benedizione. Il culto dei pozzi ha origine sin dal tempo degli Etruschi e ancora prima di loro. In molte zone italiane si trovano diverse testimonianze in proposito come ex-voto, manufatti, ecc... In questo giorno, se siete così fortunati da possedere un pozzo o vivere nelle sua vicinanze, decoratelo con ghirlande, nastri e fiori freschi.

May 26, 2020

So for part 2 of the wedding posts, I wanted to write a little about Spartan marriages, which were very unconventional by most standards. 💍 Unlike in Athens, the age gap between the bride and groom was not one that we would frown much upon; girls were very rarely married before 18, and typically, the bride would be in her early twenties while the groom might be in his late twenties or early thirties. Marriages were still often arranged between the groom and the bride’s father, but considering women’s unique status in Sparta, it’s plausible that the bride had more of a choice than in Athens or other city states. The Spartans recognised that young teenage mothers were less likely to deliver strong children and survive. 💍 Since pederasty was widely practiced before marriage, the wedding was seen as a ritual to transition from loving young men to loving women. Therefor, the bride’s hair would be cut short or shaven, and she would dress in simple men’s clothes. The groom, who would often be living in the military barracks at the time of the marriage, would sneak into her room in the night and perform a symbolic abduction, then consummate the marriage before returning to his comrades. This might sound very strange to us, but this whole ritual was considered completely in its order. 💍 The man and wife would not live together until after the man reached the age of thirty and was allowed to live outside the military barracks, but even then, he would still dine in the mess hall. The purpose of marriage was children, perhaps even more so than in other places of the ancient world, and in particular boys who could grow up to be soldiers. This was so important that if a marriage produced no children, the state sanctified the wife to take lovers in order to produce them.

Traianus was a trained soldier, and a Veteran who fought against the Parther, and fought also in the rhine area and the euphrat region. For that reason he was famous like a star. This was also the reason why the emperor Nerva choose him as his successor. Traianus was Augustus from 98 - 117 A.D.
