Roman Dates

Is there a way to convert our dates into a Roman format? I am specifically trying to convert October 19th, 2004 into a more Roman format, though I would obviously not be naming the year by the consuls.

I found this website, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.

using search engines for linguistic phenomena

I was a little impatient to confirm this issue I had with French so I went to google and did a search for "bel héros" and "beau héros". "bel héros" had 172 results and "beau héros" had about 597 results. I wanted to find out if the aspirated h rule was actually followed by native speakers when dealing with irregular adjectives like beau, mou, etc. I guess I can't assume the majority rule is always ...

Nova Roma

This has come up only once, so I mention it here in a topic:


"Because ancient Rome stands as the bedrock of western civilization...
Because Roman Virtues mean more than Family Values...
Because the Gods of Olympus are calling..."

of classical Roman
religion, culture and virtues.

Newby with problems

Hey folks,

I have been visiting Textkit for some time and have finally decided to join the forum (apt name that it is for this website). I am a "non-traditional' student (read 'old') that has left the world of engineering for English Literature with the intent of gaining a PhD in that field. So what am I doing here? Even though I spent two years in Panama and could have easily used it as my ...

My first Elegaic Couplet

gh=j d / a0palh=j propa/roiqe pro\ d / ou0rano/qen poliou= te/
dendrw=n me\n korufa\j mikrh\ e)ou=sa q / o(rw=

It took several days to compose this. Even now I wonder if there is a metrical problem in the last hemiepe. I know hiatus is not allowed, but I am relying on the rule in Pharr 1173 to make it scan. Since I am trying to imitate an earlier rather than later poet, is this ...

Tattoos in Antiquity

Christopher showed us his philosopher tattoo and I have talked to a forum member who is about to have a tattoo, too, so I became interested in the matter.

Does anyone know if it was common in Greece and Rome to get tattoos? And if so, were they merely drawings or did they also have inscriptions as is normal today?

Perhaps it was considered something other peoples did? My dictionary has:
