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.

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."

Aelius Caesar – Forgotten Prince | Roma Antiqua | Scoop.it

“He was a man of joyous life and well versed in letters. In the palace his stay was but a short one but he was considerate of his family, well-dressed, elegant in appearance, a man of regal beauty, with a countenance that commanded respect, a speaker of unusual eloquence, deft at writing verse, and, moreover, not altogether a failure in public life.” – Historia Augusta

Sale of a Female Donkey for 600 drachmas
AD 204
Roman Period Egypt
(Source: The British Museum)
Julio Peña's insight:

Written in Greek, the above is a contract for the sale of a female ass between two citizens of Alexandria, dated 204 a.d., the animal being sold for 600 drachmae, 24- lines plus 4- line autograph attestation in capital letters signed by Apollonius (Oxy.P.1707). This comes from the vast hoard of papyri excavated by Oxford University in 1896-1907 at Oxyrhynchus, of the west of the Nile near the modern town of Behnesa, about 120 miles from Cairo. The town had been well-known in the early Christian period for its churches and monasteries. The excavations furnished some of the most important and celebrated papyri ever found.
