The tainted glory of the gladiator | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it

By Ben Potter The sun rises high over Rome’s Amphitheatrum Flavium, the mightiest arena in the world. Only the colossal statue of Nero, which one-day will lend the stadium its eternal pseudonym, dwarfs it.

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.

This highly individual portrait obviously was made for a man of considerable importance. Probably it represents the man who was the first governor or Egypt under Augustus and who soon fell into disgrace and exile.
