Blimey! Since my Mainzian companions who urged me to get this book seem to be asleep, I'll post this as a seperate thread. Now who was interested? <p>Greets<BR>

IIRC Luca was interested since it contained some Italian reliefs.<br>

It's "blimey," Jasper -- just ask a "Limey!" <p></p><i></i>
Wot? It's spelled correctly...well, at least now it is. Must have been too early this morning.<br>
Thank you teacher! <p>Greets<BR>
Perhaps a Limey will explain the origin of "blimey".... <p></p><i></i>
Simple: 'blind me'<br>

The book is by Claudio Franzoni, title is "Habitus atque habitudo militis. Monumenti funerari di militari nella Cisalpina romana". ("Tombstones of soldiers from south of the Alps")<br>
Series: "Studia archaeologica" No. 45.<br>
Publisher: "L'erma" di Bretschneider, Rome, 1987.<br>
ISBN 88-7062-608-3.<br>
151 pp. + 36 tables. Cloth binding.<br>
If somebody finds it for a lot less than the more than the 70 Euros it is usually offered for (seems to be out of print), I WANT IT!<br>
Only monuments from the region between the Alps and the Appennin mountains included. The text is all Italian (help, Luca!) without any summary whatsoever; not all photos on the tables are good enough for looking at details and the collection seems incomplete, but there are a LOT of very interesting pieces among them, e. g. the representation of a <i> centurio</i> (augustan era or earlier) carrying his <i> pugio</i> horizontally and placed under the buckle of his <i> cingulum</i>.<br>

I'm of course very interested in it, but I found for 123 Euros!!!<br>
I will let you know what I will decide about this big expense! <!-- <br>
