Quote:Still lacking though Simon James (2001c), ‘The Roman galley slave: Ben-Hur and the birth of a factoid’, Public Archaeology, 2, 35-49 for a more complete account.

To finish off the myth of ancient criminals condemned to rowing, I'd love to have that article. :-D D

Well, I have written articles for Longovicium (Lanchester), Vindomora (Ebchester), Concangis (Chester-le-street) and Pons Aelius (Newcastle), but unfortunately all have no images as Wikipedia rather stupidly requires the copyright holders to release the images to the public domain for WHATEVER use (even commercial), something most if not all image holders are unlikely to do seeing as they gain nothing from it were the images to be used comemrcialy (rather than just for educational purposes which is my intent).

Does anybody know a way around this?

I think there is none. The only awkward work-around is to post links to online pictures either in the text or below at external links.

No doubt about that! And they hardly allow discussion, too! :twisted:

You should be able to tell from the log when and how the page is edited after you.

Not exactly Roman, but the article on the Hanseatic warship Adler von Lübeck, once the worlds largest ship, has received the "lesenswert" status!

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adler_von_L%C3%BCbeck

Are there by chance any nautical cracks interested in making an English translation?

I am currently applying for good article status for the Diolkos in German. Those who have a command in German and an account at the German-language version are invited to give their verdict on the application (which ends tomorrow at midnight GMT): Application

In total 700 medieval bridges: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_me ... _in_France


I have nominated Brücke bei Limyra for Lesenswert status (Good article), but it will be close. For whatever reasons, articles with footnotes are often voted down on German Wikipedia, but I won't give up offering resistance. Big Grin Any Turkish or Greek forumer by chance who can be won over to do a translation?
