Ancient Records
Two Swedish archaeologists, Allan and Cecilia Klynne, have wrote a book on ancient records. The book focuses on interesting and sometimes weird records of the Greek and Roman ancient cultures, established in a world of great acceptance for what we would call immoral today.

The book presents the record of Roman empress Messalina who won a sexual competition after challenging the best prostitute of the time. Another strange record is that of a shepherd, known as the cleanest zoophile. The most expensive building was the castle of Nero, a Roman Emperor. The man who drank the most was a soldier of Alexander who drank 13.5 liters of wine. Unfortunately, the record also killed him.

Story in Romanian here.

    Nero was a crazy guy. Interesting, but crazy. He would have been fun at a party, up untill he set fire to the whole place. =)

    Well, most of them were: Caligula, Messalina, even Caesar at times, the were all a little crazy and not into anything common.

    Why don't you use your id? I really don't get that part.

    How about Titus? He wasnt too bad. Btw Caesar really just means king. Julius might be more appropriate.

    Well you commented on my blog, so I thought it would be nice to return the comment. My id is not necessary, since you know its me anyway. =)

    Caius Iulius Caesar is the only one that comes to people's mind when saying Caesar, the only one knew by that name alone. Try googling Caesar, you will see the first returned results refer to him. On the other hand, if you say Julius, no one will know who you are talking about.

    As for not using your name, I am sorry, but that just seems childish.

    You are correct actually. Just out of curiosity, I checked it out and apparently Caesar was his family name. After that the name was associated with all the other kings of Rome. Oops! Should have googled it =).

    Its not childish. I still like reading your blog and posting comments. I would just rather be subtle about it. Not that your tracker will let me be subtle. =)
