The Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof
Są na świecie miejsca znane wszystkim z telewizji, pocztówek, przewodników.
Zawsze mnie zaskakuje, że te wszystkie tak bardzo oklepane obiekty w rzeczywistości tak samo piękne i imponujące jak je przedstawiali 😂
Playing with shadows in Hadrian's Villa's Canopus - a wonderful area where Hadrian the Emperor (76-138 a. D.) decided to build what's considered a "tribute" to Egypt, whom he loved.
Indeed, the long pool recalls Nile river, surrounded by sculptures of Egyptian Gods and Nile crocodiles; on the other side, the so-called Serapeum - a building dedicated to god Serapis, where the Emperor spent his time with friends, surrounded by trick fountains and relaxing atmospheres.
Phenomenally good placement in Altes Museum: Caesar and Cleopatra. She impressed him by having herself smuggled into his camp in a rolled up carpet and enlisted his support in her struggle against her brother. They had a son and she was residing in Rome at the time of his murder. She died as a consequence of her alliance with another powerful Roman and friend of Caesar, Marc Antony.
Szkielet perskiego wojownika z III wieku n.e. Żołnierz wciąż posiada na sobie rozciągniętą kolczugę. Mężczyzna zginął w tunelu, którym sasanidzkie wojsko chciało się przedostać, pod wieżą, do obleganego miasta Dura Europos (Syria) w 256 roku n.e.
W tunelu Pers nie znajdował się sam. Poza jego szczątkami natrafiono na kości 20 Rzymian, którzy wykopywali tunel w stronę Persów.
Naukowcy podejrzewają, że żołnierz mógł udusić się od toksycznych oparów. Zauważają także, że pancerz jest wyraźnie poszerzony, co według nich sugeruje iż duszący się mężczyzna chciał się pozbyć kolczugi. Inna koncepcja mówi, że jego towarzysz chciał go po prostu wyciągnąć na powierzchnię i ciągnął za zbroję.
Skeleton of a Persian warrior from the 3rd century CE. The soldier is still wearing his extended chain mail. The man died in the tunnel that the Sassan army wanted to get under the tower to the besieged city of Dura Europos (Syria) in 256 CE.
Persian was not alone in the tunnel. Apart from his remains, bones of 20 Romans were found; they dug a tunnel towards the Persians.
Scientists suspect that the soldier may have suffocated from toxic fumes. They also note that the armor is clearly widened, suggesting that the suffocating man wanted to get rid of his chain mail. Another concept is that his companion just wanted to pull him to the surface and pulled him by the armor.
Gli archeologi hanno portato alla luce una particolare sepoltura completa di una biga con due cavalli imbrigliati. Il ritrovamento è avvenuto vicino a Vinkovci nella Croazia orientale. Le parti metalliche della biga e gli accessori dei cavalli datano la sepoltura al III secolo d.C. e dovevano appartenere a un individuo estremamente ricco con una posizione di rilievo nell'amministrazione Romana della Pannonia. Il tumulo in cui è stato ritrovato era situato lungo una delle strade romane più importanti dell'impero che collegava l'Italia alla Pannonia e i Balcani all'Asia. Nelle vicinanze si trovava la città romana di Cibalae (l'odierna Vinkovci) e li sicuramente viveva tale famiglia. Fondata come parte della spinta romana per proteggere il confine con il Danubio, ottenne lo status di municipium sotto Ardriano e lo stato di colonia (Colonia Aurelia Cibalae) sotto Caracalla. Altre due tombe vicine sono reduci di un saccheggio antico, ma fortunatamente ai ladri sfuggì questa parte del ritrovamento.

St Peter's Basilica
Not my most respected image that I have ever captured, but one of the literally, most emotional and moving objects of creations of man that I have ever witnessed with my own eyes.
Amazing...Moving...Overwhelming...Tears of amazement, honor and respect for one of the most talented human beings that has EVER walked this earth, within the realm of art.
The Pietà (Italian: [pjeˈta]; English: "The Pity"; 1498–1499)
The Pieta is a work of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo Buonarroti, housed in St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. It is the first of a number of works of the same theme by the artist. The statue was commissioned for the French Cardinal Jean de Bilhères, who was a representative in Rome. The sculpture, in Carrara marble, was made for the cardinal's funeral monument, but was moved to its current location, the first chapel on the right as one enters the basilica, in the 18th century. It is the only piece Michelangelo ever signed.
This famous work of art depicts the body of Jesus on the lap of his mother Mary after the Crucifixion. The theme is of Northern origin. Michelangelo's interpretation of the Pietà is unprecedented in Italian sculpture. It is an important work as it balances the Renaissance ideals of classical beauty with naturalism.The structure is pyramidal, and the vertex coincides with Mary's head. The statue widens progressively down the drapery of Mary's dress, to the base, the rock of Golgotha. The figures are quite out of proportion, owing to the difficulty of depicting a fully-grown man cradled full-length in a woman's lap. Much of Mary's body is concealed by her monumental drapery, and the relationship of the figures appears quite natural. Michelangelo's interpretation of the Pietà was far different from those previously created by other artists, as he sculpted a young and beautiful Mary rather than an older woman around 50 years of age.
This landscape painting is based on Hierapolis Pamukkale located on western Turkey. This painting is now on the website of @gekkanbijutsu and on sell with another my artworks. If you interested in it please check them.
Você sabia que existiram vários “coliseus” no antigo Império Romano?
Pois é, o famoso Coliseu de Roma é apenas um (e o maior e mais famoso) de muitos outros anfiteatros que propagavam a política do pão e circo pelo Império, levando lutas contra animais e entre gladiadores para os romanos antigos.
A arena desta foto se encontra na cidade de Verona, no norte da Itália, sendo mais antiga que o Coliseu de Roma, com o destaque que se encontra em uso até hoje. A arena é um dos exemplares melhores conservados e sempre manteve seu uso para entretenimento da população. Atualmente, grandes espetáculos e óperas são apresentados na Arena de Verona, especialmente durante o verão. .
Notem uma estrutura no centro da arena - alguns trabalhadores estavam desmontando uma cobertura sobre a arena onde havia cadeiras para os espectadores do espetáculo.
Mais detalhes sobre Verona e sobre esta arena nos destaques Verona #1 e #2 .
Cybele (PART TWO)
Cybele was a goddess originally from Phrygya. Designated as "Mother of gods" or "Mother goddess", it symbolized the fertility of nature. Its worship began in the region of Asia Minor and spread to various territories of Ancient Greece. Under the ancient Greek title, Potnia Theron goddess, whose worship dates back to the Neolithic period of the life-death-rebirth cycle linked to the resurrection of her son and lover Attis.
Cybele was often depicted with a crown of walls, symbolizing her military might as a protector, and at the same time devastating cities, with lions nearby or in a car pulled by these animals and a cornucopia, the horn of abundance, referring to fertility and wealth.
According to the Greeks, this goddess would be an incarnation of Rhea, worshiped at Berecinto, one of the peaks of Mount Ida in Phrygya, hence the epithet of Berecintiana given to her sometimes. The cult inclued orgiastic manifestations, as was typical of fertility-relared gods, celebrated by curetes. Its is also related to the Greek legend of Agdistis and Attis.
This eastern deity was introduced in Rome at the time of the Punic Wars, around 204 BC. Its adoption in Rome, and in Lazio, was made after the Latinization of its name, the "Great Mother" of Mount Ida, located near Troia, which goes back to the legend of Aeneas, portrayed by Virgil in the Aeneid. At the time, the Romans sent from Pessinunte, the land of King Midas and where was the main temple dedicated to the goddess, a black stone that symbolized her. Your priests, the galli, are imported and the renewal of this priesthood is done in the same way, because castration, ritual present in the initiation to a Roman. A temple to the goddess is built on Palatine Hill and its rituals enter the official religious calender of the city of Rome. It was accompanied by a guide and lover, Attis, whose cult, suspect in the eyes of the Romans, was only really released by Emperor Claudius.
Information about the cult of Cybele is found in Catulo, 6e and Lucretius.
Copenhagen. Denmark. Statue of the goddess Cybele, ca. 60 BC. Ny Carlsberg Glyptothek. From Formia, (in present day Lazio), Italy. Marble.
ARMILUSTRIUM 19 Ottobre
IL 19 di ottobre si teneva la solenne purificazione (lustratio) delle armi che venivano risposte, di fatto concludeva la stagione militare, per la consueta pausa rituale invernale. Alla cerimonia partecipano i Salii.
Armilustrium, Il nome deriva da armilustrio, luogo dove si tengono le cerimonie sacre da uomini armati, come detto in precedenza il termine deriva da ludere o da lustrare, perché uomini armati di scudi effettuavano una danza sacra.
Armilustrium ab eo quod in Armilustrio armati sacra faciunt, nisi locus potius dictus ab his; sed quod de his prius, id ab ludendo aut lustro, id est quod circumibant ludentes ancilibus armati.
Pompeii (Italy), Forum granary.
They stretch on the western side of the Forum with eight openings separated by brick pillars and were used as for the fruit and vegetable market (Forum Holitorium). Today they form the greatest archaeological inventory of the city and have more than 9000 artefacts from the excavations in Pompeii and its territory since the end of the 19th century. They preserve the terracotta crockery that was used in the last decades of life of the city for every day activities, such as pots and pans for cooking, jugs and bottles, and amphorae, large containers used to transport oil, wine and fish sauce throughout the Mediterranean. The building was built after the earthquake of 62 AD and it might have not been completed at the time of the eruption (79 AD).
Pompei (Italia), granai del foro.
I granai si aprono sul lato occidentale del Foro con otto aperture separate da pilastri in laterizio e svolgevano la funzione di mercato della frutta e verdura. Oggi sono il più importante magazzino archeologico della città e ospitano più di novemila reperti provenienti dagli scavi condotti a Pompei e nel suo territorio dalla fine dell’800. Custodiscono il vasellame in terracotta che veniva impiegato negli ultimi decenni di vita della città per svolgere le attività quotidiane, come pentole e fornelli per la cottura, brocche e bottiglie, e anfore, i grandi contenitori utilizzati per trasportare olio, vino e salse di pesce da tutto il Mediterraneo. L’edificio fu costruito dopo il terremoto del 62 d.C. e forse non era ancora terminato al momento dell’eruzione (79 d.C).

The Roman Baths themselves are below the modern street level. There are four main features: the Sacred Spring, the Roman Temple, the Roman Bath House, and the museum which holds finds from Roman Bath. The buildings above street level date from the 19th century.
Colossal Baalbek! Look for me -I’m in the picture with these 60 foot high column shafts.
Sure Rome has some temples this big, but they no longer stand! I’ll include Baalbek in ancientromelive.org. #ancientrome#history#archaeology
