Photos of the pair have not been released. Italian police officer Mario Cerciello Rega was stabbed eight times at 2 a. Officer Rega was declared dead at a.
Roman criminal law was a little - or rather a lot - harsher than criminal law today, at least in most western societies. When one thinks of punishment in Roman times, images of criminals being crucificed or eaten alive by lions damnatio ad bestias or Latin for "damnation to beasts" in the coliseum directly come to mind. Roman punishment actually varied depending on one's position in Roman society.
The Romans. A favored slave of a wealthy patrician could live in relative comfort; a less-fortunate laborer could literally be worked to death. Ancient Roman slaves were usually prisoners captured in war, but some were people who had been kidnapped in Italy.
After three millennia of being governed by men, Rome elected its first female mayor in June, year-old Virginia Raggi, an intellectual-property lawyer and activist who ran as a candidate for the populist Five Star Movement M5S. The women of Rome have been making headway in business and politics and are subtly reshaping the city in their image, from billboards to boardrooms. The authority that men extrude is still very much perceivable. One time, I found myself in a new kitchen where the sous chef was talking about having sex with someone I knew.
Philostorgius, whose work survives in a ninth-century epitome, also recounts that Hypatia died "during the reign of Theodosius the younger" Ecclesiastical History, VIII. Socrates Scholasticus provides the date of her death: "the month of March during Lent, in the fourth year of Cyril's episcopate, under the tenth consulate of Honorius, and the sixth of Theodosius" Ecclesiastical HistoryVII. If Hypatia's floruit coincided with the beginning of Arcadius' reign, she would have been born about AD and sixty years old in ADan age consistent with the remark of Malalas that Hypatia was "an old woman" when she died.
Saint Agnes — C. Traditionally, Agnes was martyred for her faith during the persecution of Emperor Diocletian in the late third century C. However, some believe she may have died under Decius in a localized persecution half a century before this.
The enormous arena was empty, save for the seesaws and the dozens of condemned criminals who sat naked upon them, hands tied behind their backs. Unfamiliar with the recently invented contraptions known as petauruathe men tested the seesaws uneasily. One criminal would push off the ground and suddenly find himself 15 feet in the air while his partner on the other side of the seesaw descended swiftly to the ground.
Some may recognize this image, as it's been floating around the web for a long time. I finally found a half-decent scan the usual image being a lousy pso with a p in hand, I decided to colorize it as best I could; the colors on the original being utterly hideous. I have VERY fond memories of this picture, as it was one of the first half-decent gladiatrix pictures that went online, in the mid to late 90s. Seeing it again gives me the warm fuzzies.
The emperors of Rome could be wise, just and kind. They could also be vindictive, cruel and insane. And most of all, they could be the worst perverts the world has ever seen — at least according to ancient historians like Suetonius, Pliny, and Cassius Dio.
