Quote:Does anyone know what happened to Forum Romanum? It's tragic that such a superb resource has gone - is it permanent?
Mr. David Camden was never an enthusiastic e-mailer, which of course is fine, but now it is really a bit sad that we can not reach him. Both Bill and I have written to him, but he has not replied. So, we do not know.

Rejoice!!! Apparently he backed it up better than we thought.

I do not know what happened to FR. It may be that there was a server problem. There was a lesson to this incident: how vulnerable ancient texts are - some of the texts on FR were only accessible over there. There was a serious risk that they would vanish, forever, in their digital form.

One of the more sinister aspects of the internet is that nothing ever vanishes!

An update about the Roman fort at Flevum includes a photo of a human skull. Bill recently put online an old but amusing article onliterary frauds in ancient Rome.

Bill has added several articles on the origin of the name Cilicia and birth control. He continues the on-line Aulus Gellius; Latin is there, English will be there soon.

Continuing my series on ancient Libya, a little page on two obelisk-shaped tombs in a mixed Roman-Libyan style.

Last weekend, I visited the Musée de Mariemont in Morlanweltz, and added Saulzoir in northern France, which is the most likely location of the battle between Caesar and the Nervians in 57 BC. Frankly, you need a lot of imagination, but here you have some photos and here is Caesar's account.

There is an online edition at Forum Romanum and one at Latin Library, but please note that they contain many mistakes, which are due to poor scanning: e.g., cli instead of dvi, occasionally UCl for uci. This one is better and will be checked against Gardthausen's Teubner.
