ICONS | LIVIA DRVSILLA | LIVIA AVGVSTA | ROMAN EMPIRE | Wife of Augustus, mother of Tiberius, grandmother of Claudius, great-grandmother of Caligula, and great-great-grandmother of Nero, Livia was deified by Caludius who, like Tiberius, Caligula, and Nero, were connected to the Julians through her marriage to Augustus. Livia and Augustus were both married when they met—Livia already mother to Tiberius and pregnant with Nero Claudius Drusus and Augustus’ wife, Scribonia, pregnant with Julia the Elder. Augustus pressured Livia’s husband, Tiberius Claudius Nero, to divorce her and divorced his own wife on the day of his daughter’s birth. Despite such beginnings, Livia remained the wife of Augustus throughout his reign and is even credited with his dead by some ancient sources. .

ICONS | CLEOPATRA PHILOPATER VII | PTOLEMAIC DYNASTY | ANCIENT EGYPT | Cleopatra’s reign brought an end to 275 years of Ptolemaic rule in Egypt, and effectively ended Ancient Egyptian sovereignty. As pharaoh, she was both absolute ruler of Egypt, Cyprus, and other provinces, as well as the deified head of the Egypto-Greco religious amalgam of the time. Her relationships with both Julius Caesar and Marc Antony lead her to be cast as a witch, sorceress, and seductress among the Roman populace, especially in the lead up to and during th Final War of the Roman Republic. It was commonly believed that she committed suicide by snake bite and was paraded in effigy with a snake dangling from her breast in Augustus’s triumph. .

Lungo la via Stabiana, immediatamente fuori l’omonima porta di accesso alla città antica, in un’area adiacente alla tomba monumentale di Gnaeus Alleius Nigidius Maius, portata alla luce lo scorso anno, sono stati avviati alla fine del 2017 interventi di restauro e valorizzazione di altre due monumenti funebri.

Si tratta di due tombe a camera  denominate “Tomba A” e “Tomba B” già scavate nel 2001 e ubicate in uno spazio delimitato da un marciapiede e da muretto in opera reticolata parzialmente rivestito di intonaco.

One of the most discussed urban projects in Rome in the last few years. Now we can take a look of one of the first archaeology stations of the Line C of the Rome Underground. There will be other stations like this, a great qualitative leap for Rome. 💪

Among the rooms that have been unearthed in #VillaMosaiciSpello, the Radiant Sun Room is the best preserved one.
Its astonishing birds and geometrical composition preserve untouched their original charm.

Hello, this is one of my sketchbook pages, - a Roman bathhouse illustration - image inspired by my trip to #chedworthromanvilla last year to see my archaeologist brother who I think is currently there working on the mosaics again right now, you can pop in and see them at work which is fun to see archaeology in action! - I think the tool is called a 'strigil' used for scraping off dirt and oil before bathing - PS: any experts out there please don't rate me on my historical accuracy! 😬😄⛏️🏺🖌️.

We've got an exciting bit of worked jet from #BinchesterDig2018 that is likely to have been a piece of furniture inlay based on the bevelled edges (second image)! The jet would have been brought by the Romans from Whitby where it naturally occurs. It is unusual to see jet used in this way as it is more commonly used to make jewellery. @theaucklandproject

The Great Fire of Rome
July 19th, AD 64
-
The #GreatFire of #Rome was an urban fire in July of the year AD 64. It caused widespread devastation in the city on 19 July, before being brought under control after six days. -
-
History has blamed #Nero, the emperor for the disaster, implying that he started the fire so that he could bypass the senate and rebuild Rome to his liking. 
Nero instead blamed the Christians for it and started the first organized persecution of them through the whole empire.

‪On this day - July 19 - Romans celebrated the Lucaria, in a large grove (lucus) between the Via Salaria and the Tiber River. The meaning of the festival was lost by the late republic, but was most likely a way of acknowledging the spirits of woodland cleared for agriculture.‬ #romanhistory #legoclassic #minifig #legofan #legoclassicists #legophoto #bricknetwork

The 22 m high façade (scaena) of the Roman theatre at Aosta in northern Italy. The theatre was constructed in the 1st century CE and further extended in the 3rd century CE. The theatre had a capacity of 3-4,000 spectators.

I wanted to share these photos of yesterday's beach visit to the Roman ruins of the beautiful town of Baelo Claudia. At its height during the Roman Empire it was an important port, being a main gateway to the north african territories (in particular Tingis, or Tangier as it is known today) It was also an important centre for fishing and produced fish pastes and brines that were highly prized throughout the empire 🐟🦈 The most popular product was garum, a savoury paste made from tuna and sturgeon. Production peaked in the 1st century BC.
In the pictures you can see the Forum, baths and some of the temple ruins of the town.

A grand building but I think it's time after a few years its been hanging around they put a window or two in, not to mention the leaky roof. Another Government Scheme I suppose.
Seriously though, great tour, well worth a visit. Incredible building with fantastic history. #romangladiter #ROMANCOLISIUM #Realhistory #bloodandhistory #Roman #romanhistory #romans #architecture #italian #colisium #colesseo #scheme #€€ #Europeanproject #craft #build #windows #old #oldbuild #restoration #italianrestoration #Italianarchitecture

ICONS | MARCVS TVLLIVS CICERO | LATE ROMAN REPUBLIC | A self-made statesman and middling politician, Cicero held sway over the senate’s moderate faction. Throughout his career, he saw the rise and fall of Catiline, Cinna, Sulla, and Julius Caesar. After opposing Caesar, he eventually came around to populace cause, refraining from participating in the assassination and eventually working alongside Marc Antony and Octavius during the early part of the Second Triumvirate. His career was brought to a violent end after publicly decrying Antony as a drink-sodden, sex-ridden wreck—Rome’s Helen of Troy. .

#todayinhistory on July 18, 64, The great fire of Rome breaks out and destroys much of the city. Despite the well-known stories, there is no evidence that the Roman emperor, Nero, either started the fire or played the fiddle while it burned. Still, he did use the disaster to further his political agenda. 🔥 Interesting fact: Emperor Nero used the fire as an opportunity to rebuild Rome in a more orderly Greek style and began construction on a massive palace called the Domus Aureus. Some speculated that the emperor had ordered the burning of Rome to indulge his architectural tastes, but he was away in Antium when the conflagration began. According to later Roman historians, Nero blamed members of the mysterious Christian cult for the fire and launched the first Roman persecution of Christians in response. #italianhistory #rome #romanhistory #nero

Stop off to get some lunch just outside Rome city center and there’s a playground with an ancient Roman aqueduct behind it which was used to carry fresh water from the hills to the city. 🤷🏻‍♂️ #rome #italy #romanhistory
