The Colosseum in Rome - Biblical Archaeology in Rome (Bible History Online)

The Colosseum in Rome - Biblical Archaeology in Rome (Bible History Online) | old kingdom | Scoop.it
The Colosseum was known in ancient Rome as the Flavian Amphitheatre, named after the 3 emperors who were all involved in its construction.
aliyyah bradford's insight:

The most imposing structure built in Rome was the Colosseum. This huge amphitheater (double theater) had seating all around. The arena is also known as the Flavian amphitheater because it was built during the reign of the Emperor Vespasian (69-79 AD) although gladiatorial games existed for centuries. The murderous battles of man-and-man and man-and-animal were staged in the Colosseum. The oval arena (287 x 180 feet) was surrounded by a 15 foot wall and had deep cells and cellars below.

aliyyah bradford's insight:

Many of the relics of Rome's history, either came from Greece or were copied from the Greeks, so there's an abundance of Greek influence everywhere. Rome's legions conquered what they believed to be the more-cultured Greek civilizations by adopting the Greek gods, art styles, fashions and even language.

The Ancient Startup Communities of Greece and Rome - SEO'Brien

The Ancient Startup Communities of Greece and Rome - SEO'Brien | old kingdom | Scoop.it
What we can learn from the ancient civilizations of Rome and Greece, about entrepreneurship and startups, so that our economy today, can avoid the bankruptcy of Greece and the burning of Rome.
aliyyah bradford's insight:

The civilization of Rome was governed by a single republic representative of the people, unified toward the ideal of the republic. 

While they paid homage to the Gods (largely borrowed from the Greeks), they believed in Manifest Destiny more than worshiping the Gods to whom they were beholden. Like the United States reaching for the Pacific in the 1800s, it was their responsibility to bring Rome to everyone.  The Gods play a role, but the Romans are in control however, they did not force Roman culture; in fact, those conquered retained their own, Rome believed it was bettering civilizations, not meant to replace them.

aliyyah bradford's insight:

In the fourth century BC Rome began to expand within the italian peninsula. Coming into greater contact with the Greeks, embraced the suggestion that Aeneas had a role in the foundation of their great city. In the first century B.C, the Roman poet Virgil developed the Aeneas myth in his epic poem the Aeneid, which told of Aeneas' journey to Rome.
