The Harvest Festival is tomorrow. And I am so proud of all of you. You’ve worked so hard. You’re amazing. So I have a surprise. And it is possibly the best thing to potentially ever happen to anyone anywhere in the history of the universe.

Emperor’s frescoed rooms unveiled for first time in Rome

ROME: Lavishly frescoed rooms in the houses of the Roman Emperor Augustus and his wife Livia are opening for the first time to the public on Thursday (Sep 18), after years of painstaking restoration. The houses on Rome’s Palatine hill where the emperor lived with his family are re-opening after a €2.5 million (US$3.22 million) restoration to mark the 2,000 anniversary of Augustus’s death - with previously off-limit chambers on show for the first time.

From garlands of flowers on Pompeian red backgrounds to majestic temples and scenes of rural bliss, the rooms are adorned with vividly coloured frescoes, many in an exceptional condition. Restorers said their task had been a complex one, with bad weather during excavation threatening the prized relics of a golden era in the Eternal City. Read more.

ATTENTION MORAHOLICS WHO CAN’T GO TO THE CONCERT!

la-princesse-incongrue:

Hi friend!  Do you love MOR? Are you unable to go to the concert next week cause plane tickets are expensive as fuck?? 

Well my Mozartienne sources at the PDS say they’re selling lil twelve-packs of MOR postcards for cheap at those little folding tables the sketchy street dudes set up on the sidewalk, and I had a friend go ahead and buy me some.

Do you want one?  A free little souvenir from the concert?

If you do, PM me your address and after the concert I’ll mail one to you for free!  That way you’ll get a little bit of something even if you can’t go.

PM me your address!!!  You won’t regret it! :D

Even if you don’t want a postcard, can you be a friend and signal boost?

greek-museums:

National Archaeological Museum, Athens:

A Panathenaic amphora with a depiction of a winged Nike (Victory) watching a wrestling match waiting to crown the victor.
These amphoras were given as prizes in the Panathenaic Games. Depending on the sport and the victory, a winner could receive from 4 of these amphoras to 40 of them- all filled with 36 kilos of olive oil. The athlete could then trade this oil- and the amphoras. The oil was sold all over the Mediterranean and it was especially sought after by young athletes.

See more panathenaic amphoras here.
