By the way, I have been thinking that we could maintain a sort of weekly correspondence in order to practice our composition (at the Composition board, of course). It could be done all Sunday -or Saturday, as you want-. First I would write you, and the next week, you would write me. We have a week to read the message and write peacefully. What do you think?
It's a great idea, but first I need to study more and finish Mastronarde before I spread myself too thin and start composition. After all, my main goal is to read prose. But maybe this would work in the future!
BTW, is your avatar a bust of Marcus Aurelius, or Antoninus Pius? Marcus Aurelius is one of my favourite emperors of the Empire, both in its Roman and Byzantine phases.
