  1. Re: Portraits for Greek and Roman generals/agents need more variety than the old, repetitive RTW set

    Yeah, making them all greyscale would be simpler than finding a bunch of portrait busts for the dead portraits. I'll try all of this out and inform everyone here on if it works or not.

    Re: Donald's First 100 Days and Before

    The Vice President is the one person in the executive cabinet that the president is unable to fire. He is an elected official, not some appointee that Trump can use and abuse before tossing to the...
  3. Re: Portraits for Greek and Roman generals/agents need more variety than the old, repetitive RTW set

    Thanks! But would someone from the EB II team be so kind as to please explain how to do this, though? I think it's as simple as just adding new pics of an appropriate size and file type (i.e. ".tga"...
  4. Re: I present to you, Macedonia (ancient kingdom) on Wikipedia, my present project

    Awesome! I don't have access to it or to "Die ostgriechischen Grabreliefs" by Pfuhl (1979), so unfortunately I can't do anything about it. I'll try to search a bit more online, but I don't know how...
  5. Re: Portraits for Greek and Roman generals/agents need more variety than the old, repetitive RTW set

    Thanks! Just as an example, here are some faces that I'm thinking about adding, after cropping them to an appropriate avatar size, taken from ancient Greek and Roman artwork (as well as 19th-century...
  6. Portraits for Greek and Roman generals/agents need more variety than the old, repetitive RTW set

    This is something I've brought up before but was mostly ignored by others here. It's something that has always slightly bothered me, although I appreciate the efforts to have unique portrait cards...

    Eh. He was an average to slightly above average president (some would argue a good president for helping to stem the effects of the 2007-2008 global financial crisis). The best criticism you could...

  16. Re: The grandiose description of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan (Mexico), in the second letter to Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, by Hernan Cortés, 1520

    That's a very good point. I guess the one saving grace in this was that the enemies of the Aztecs no longer had to supply them with human sacrifices.



    Okay, but I didn't really say anything to...

  19. Re: Hygiene after the Norman Invasion of England?

  20. Re: Hygiene after the Norman Invasion of England?

    Interesting, but according to Willcox (2000) the ancient Babylonians only created a "soap-like" substance using oils other than animal fats, not soap proper. The same rule applies to the ancient...

    Precisely.



    Good point, although other literary examples could suffice. For instance, Marcus Aurelius wrote his Meditations in Koine Greek.

  32. Re: Why did the Sassanids pick Ctesiphon as their capital?

    It was apparently a risk that they were willing to gamble with repeatedly. It's also the same reason why Roman emperor Constantine I wanted to move the capital from Rome itself to "New Rome" at...
