    Welcome and Introduce Yourself Here

    Salvete, omnes - I've been a member at UNRV for some time, but I rarely get over here. Despite that AND because of that, I thought I would post a Hello once more. Rome has been an interest for me (to whatever degree!) since I was a teen (a late 1960s teen) when I read Rex Warner's translation of Caesar's Gallic War. And I have made some study of Rome and the Latin language since. But I wanted to say hi, and say it especially to Ursus and Nephele, who greeted me when I first arrived here, years ago.

    Thanks, Viggen. Ut felix sit hic Novus Annus nobis omnibus.

    The Heritage of Roman Names

    Salve, Urse - However much we love the Classical world, the Hebrew prophets & heroes are powerful & Romantic figures out of literature & history. ("Romantic" in the common, non-Roman, wild & passionate sense.) It's just a name sourced from a different thread of culture - might as well have been Greek, Germanic, Slavic, or even pop-fantasy derived! Vale bene.

    All time favorite book

    I read Sutcliff's Eagle of the Ninth recently - yes, a good book. I had read Frontier Wolf some time ago, enjoyed it. I have sitting at home The Lost Eagles by Ralph Graves (published the year I was born, 1955) which I had started but put aside and need to finish. Can't give a judgment on that one yet - perhaps one of you has read it?
