Carmina Decima: Ovid praises the ship which carried him to the East, and describes a loose itinerary of his voyage.

In this episode, Bettany heads to Turkey. The site of Yenikapi, in Istanbul, is home to one of the largest archaeological digs in the world, covering over 58,000 square metres, discovered during development work. Most of the remains relate to the artificial Theodosian Harbour from the Byzantine period including over 37 remarkably well-preserved shipwrecks, the largest group of Byzantine shipwrecks ever found. The site is a treasure trove of finds, from preserved camel skeletons to a container of cherries. Bettany heads to the conservation lab to see some of these remarkable finds first-hand, and Lucy speaks to one of the archaeologists working on the shipwreck remains.

Concursus Corēānus…

Ilsa, Andreas, et Clara una ad Latine colloquendum conveniunt. Hodie de rebus quibus terrentur colloquuntur nam omnes nos aliquid timemus. Quid vos? Quae sunt quae in vos terrorem iniciant? Vosne, ut Clara, araneas times? Vel, ut Andreas, mare altum? Vel, ut Ilsa, locos altissimos? Scribite nobis nam nihil nobis gratius est quam responsa vestra audire!

‘Sorting’ Out Your Day:

Today on the Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar:

[Saturday] If it thunders today, it portends a storm for the state and disease for both humans and animals.

[Sunday] If it thunders today, it portends beetles destroying the grain.

… adapted from the text and translation of:

Jean MacIntosh Turfa, The Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar, in Nancy Thomson de Grummond and Erika Simon (eds.), The Religion of the Etruscans. University of Texas Press, 2006. (Kindle edition)
