Jedna od posebnosti katedrale Dioklecijanove palače tajnovite su egipatske sfinge.Osobito je impresivna najveća i najbolje očuvana ona koja se nalazi na Peristilu i smatra se jednom od najvećih uopće.U posljednjih sto godina pronađeni su fragmenti ukupno 11 sfingi.U egipatskoj mitologiji sfinge su bile čuvarice grobova faraona,pa se egipatske sfinge mogu smatrati čuvaricama Dioklecijanivog mauzoleje.Dioklecijan,sin Jupiterov formalno je nosio titulu faraona.Ovu sfingu na Peristilu stari splićani zvali su Gorgona.Ona potječe iz vramena faraona Tutmozisa i stara je tri i pol tisućljeća.Sfinge u Splitu postale su dio ambijenta srednjevjekovnog Splita i uklopile se u skulptorske elemente oko nove katedrale.👀

Roman Helmets

A persistent problem with the study of Roman helmets has been, basically, too much attention to detail. Helmets that really are the same might be classed as different because of their appearance, even though this just really might have to do with stylistic reasons. Nevertheless, Roman helmets across the centuries continuously showed the army's concerns for headgear, although it would probably be a mistake to see it as a steady evolution.
---
The safety of the head was obviously of foremost importance, which was normally vulnerable to hacking attacks, such as from swords. Roman helmets during the Late Republic and Principate were reinforced with a brow guard and the latter also had crossbars at the top, which were specifically meant to protect from such attacks. The neckguard was also important, and over time it became longer and broader, and it also offered some protection for the shoulders.
---
Roman helmets also left the face and ears open to prevent vision or hearing from being obstructed, although their cheek pieces and ear guards offered sufficient protection still. This was because the Romans realized it was vital for a soldier to be able to see clearly and hear commands well. The only real break from this is the so-called Niederbieber type helmet, initially used by the cavalry and later in the Infantry in the 3rd century AD, however its wider use was relatively short lived.
---
There were two ways in which the Romans produced their helmets. The easiest way was to hold a piece of metal against a wooden or stone revolving former, while the more time-consuming one was to beat it into shape. The iron the Romans used couldn't be used with the former since it was liable to break under such conditions, so helmets made from that were hand-made, while formers were used for bronze helmets. However helmets made via this manner tended to not be as strong.

Day 230/365. Grateful for warm summer days to see the sights in Rome. Here is the Arch of Constantine. He is credited with making Christianity an acceptable religion in Rome, before his time Christians were persecuted. #365daysofgratitude #rome #archofconstantine #romanhistory #italy #roma #italia

Europa’s father, desperate to see his daughter, sends his son out in search, adding that he need not return home alone. Ovid reflects on the father’s love for his daughter, yet cruelty towards his son.

Ever heard of historical death metal? Well here you go!! Historical Roman death metal band that reflects upon the Roman empire, some hard stuff but also symphonic and melodic! Definitely a high recommendation from me!

Hidden details. Oxford, Ashmolean Museum, inv. 1947.277. This is a bust of emperor Lucius Verus in his fourth portrait type (Samtherrschafts-Typus), constructed between 161 and 169 CE. The bust was found together with a similar bust of Marcus Aurelius in the sanctuary of the Egyptian deity Isis in Probalinthos. Lucius Verus has a long curly beard which was a significant trait of the Antonine dynasty. Hadrian was the first emperor to wear a beard, after which it become common practice (until the reign of Constantine the Great). Lucius Verus wears the cuirass with a military cloak (paludamentum), fastened with a fibula on his right shoulder. Just peeking below the cloak is part of a gorgoneion (or Medusa’s head) which was often placed on armor and/or shield to scare away the enemy. Another detail reveals itself just below the fibula, where one can recognize the shape of a mythological sea creature, probably a Titan or Giant. #ancientworld #history #rome #oxford #ashmoleanmuseum #ashmolean #romanhistory #romanemperor #leadership #ancienthistory #romanstatue #archaeology #ancientrome #ancientart #ancientreligion #romanworld #ancientreligion #ancientgreece #luciusverus

Breakfast is rarely recorded as a meal in Byzantium. The primary meals were lunch (ariston) and dinner (deipnon). One medical author recommended that one third of your daily consumption should be at lunch, the remaining two-thirds at dinnertime (Aetios, Medical Textbook, 9.27).

Vitellius knew how to eat 😂 Suetonius perhaps exaggerated on the scale of the feast but it was a grand event anyway.
