Heading towards the Colosseum we passed a hole being dug in Via in Publicolis and beyond the hole a beautiful classical church. We asked a man standing beside the excavation how we could get to the church. It turns out that he was an archaeologist and every hole that gets dug in a street in Rome is accompanied by one because there is so much archeology everywhere!!! Instead of the Colosseum he suggested we should visit the 4thC Basilica of Saint Crisogono. #rome #archoeology #ancientrome

Shakespeare, you coward; Hollywood, you timorous poltroon. Keep your Julius Caesar, your Coriolanus, your Titus Andronicus, your Spartacus and Gladiators. I want to hear stories about TARQUIN SUPERBUS. What a name!

Here’s his portrait of Luke Wadding (d. 1657) still hanging today in St Isidore’s #Rome, the college founded by the Waterfordman.

Serious vibes in the series finale of . I’m not an educated classicist and I know they had to change things for the show and its collapsing budget by this point, but I’m a bit skeptical that the real story was like this.

No wonder people see this show as a precursor to Game of Thrones - I may get round to watching that. I’ll have to rewatch season 1 later.

I also just bought Ten Caesars and will read it soon.
