El cuidado personal en la antigua Roma

El cuidado personal en la antigua Roma | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it
En la antigua Roma la estética representó una verdadera obsesión. Cuanto más alto era el estatus de la persona, más cuidada era su apariencia. Maquillajes, perfumes o peinados no eran en absoluto exclusivos del sexo femenino, sino que los hombres también optaron por embellecerse y cuidarse.   El maquillaje El conocimiento de la cosmética y…

Diva Claudia Octavia

Diva Claudia Octavia | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it
LYDIA, Sardis. Diva Claudia Octavia. Died AD 62. Æ (18mm, 6.11 g, 12h). Mindios, strategos for the second time. ΘEAN OKTAOYIAN, draped bust right, wearing wreath of grain ears / Veiled female standing right, holding scepter.
Julio Peña's insight:

From the site:

 

"Beloved by the populace but hated by her husband, Claudia Octavia’s marriage to her stepbrother Nero was an unhappy one. When an affair with his mistress Poppaea Sabina resulted in pregnancy, Nero divorced Octavia and had her banished to the island of Pandateria on a false (and ironic) charge of adultery. The Roman population demanded for her return, but she was soon after executed on the order of Poppaea. cngcoins.com"

Clasificación de los yelmos romanos según Marcus Junkelmann

Clasificación de los yelmos romanos según Marcus Junkelmann | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it

La clasificación de los yelmos romanos es compleja debido a que muchas veces nos encontramos con distintas formas de clasificarlos según que estudios se usen para ello. Los principales son los de Russell-Robinson, usado por los historiadores anglosajones, y los de Marcus Junkelmann, empleado por historiadores alemanes y centro-europeos.

CÉSAR EN EGIPTO

CÉSAR EN EGIPTO | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it

César y unos cuatro mil hombres surcaban el Mediterráneo, embarcados en treinta y cinco galeras, rumbo a Alejandría. Supo que Pompeyo había huido a Egipto, y deseaba consolidar su victoria en Farsalia antes de que su rival reuniera nuevas fuerzas. Llegó el 2 de octubre (en realidad el 27 de julio; hasta ese punto estaba desfasado el calendario, que el propio César reformó más tarde) y desembarcó a sus legionarios y su caballería en la ciudad.

Julio Peña's insight:

Interesting little figurine. While looking at the three pictures included in the link I noticed a couple of things: a) A small pugio? b) Is his shield 4-sectional or is that artistic convention? c) If one sees in the back as in the picture above one may notice the straps which I think are holding the "manica".

 

From: http://www.quickiwiki.com/en/List_of_Roman_gladiator_types

 

"Provocator

In the late Republican and early Imperial era, the armament of a provocator ("challenger") mirrored legionary armature. In the later Imperial period, their armament ceased to reflect its military origins, and changes in armament followed changes in arena fashion only. Provocatores have been shown wearing a loincloth, a belt, a long greave on the left leg, a manica on the lower right arm, and a visored helmet without brim or crest, but with a feather on each side. They were the only gladiators protected by a breastplate (cardiophylax) which is usually rectangular, later often crescent-shaped. They fought with a tall, rectangular shield and the gladius. They were paired only against other provocatores."
