When in Rome


Episode XIX – Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus

If you had to name a god that the Romans worshipped above all others it would have to be Jupiter, and the temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus on the Capitoline Hill was the most important temple in the empire. While the building is long since destroyed we have a good idea of what it looked like, thanks to the attention of Roman writers.

Guest: Dr Lily Withycombe (curator from the National Museum of Australia)


The History of Ancient Greece Podcast

031 – Cyrus the Great

In this episode, we discuss the conquest and administration of the Cyrus, whose deeds and qualities were so exceptional that he earned the moniker “the Great”


The Maritime History Podcast

028 – Unlocking the Pontus Euxinus

In today’s installment, we’ll tell a tale of two cities in one sense. The age of colonization in Greece had an early leader in the island of Euboea, but as the Euboeans were stretched thin, Corinth and Miletus rose to become the leaders of Greek colonization. We’ll look at the wealth that Corinth controlled thanks partially to her location, but also to the diolkos and other maritime innovations that she instituted. Our second city of focus is Miletus, the ‘jewel of Ionia’. She was at the forefront of the Greek push into the Euxine Sea, or, the Black Sea. So after laying out the geography of the ‘Pontus Euxinus’ and her approaches, we’ll look at the colonies, resources, and importance of the Greek effort to unlock the Black Sea. We also consider the aeinautae, a group of magistrates who ruled Miletus by sailing out to sea and weighing anchor until they’d made whatever decision was at hand. An interesting method of governing, to be sure.


The Almost Forgotten

Episode 2.3 – The Diadochi Part 3 – Eumenes and Antigonus

After the death of Perdiccas, Antigonus chases Eumenes halfway across the empire. Meanwhile, in Greece and Macedon, a fight begins over Antipater’s position after he dies


Myths and Legends

59-Greek Myths: The Violence of Our Ancestors

Many connected stories from Greek mythology. We’ll start with story of Hades and Persephone, and learn why she’s always hanging around the underworld (hint: it’s not because she wants to). Then, I’ll tell the story of the curse of the house of Atreus, starting with Tantalus and his questionable food choices. It’s a long, dark episode, so get ready. The creature is the Nakki, from Finland, who just wants to drown you and look good while doing it. Is that too much to ask? 


Sermones Raedarii

Sermo Raedarius XXVI

De ludo Versipellis et quomodo eo utor in grege meo primi anni. Gratias @silvius_toda, vide etiam


Roman Emperors: Totalus Rankium

48 Numerian

Murder! Death! Intrigue! ok, Numerian’s rule was no more interesting than you last drive across the country, but with added eye pain, but his death is a murder mystery that would make Columbo stop and ask just one more thing. So, who killed him? The evil Aper, or the diabolical Diocles?

49 Carinus

The end of the Crisis is here! Does Carinus usher in a new golden age? Or is he the last of the dregs that have to be hosed down the drain pipe before Rome can get on its feet again? You can probably guess by the length of the episode! But who knows? Maybe he has that certain Je Na Caesar?



A fresh take on ancient myth

Episode 19: Pelops

Pelops who? Meet this lesser-known Greek hero-king who lends his name to the Peloponnese and is connected with the founding of the Olympic games. Was he really chopped up by his father and served to the gods or is something else going on?
