Octavian on this day, 27 BC received the new name Augustus. Here is a copy of one of his most famous portraits, on display with family members in the Museum of the Ara Pacis (9. BC) visible in the distance. #romeonthisday @saverome #experiencerome @museiincomuneroma @turismoromaweb #rome #roma #history #archaeology #romanhistory

Theofilakta or Theodosian walls of Constantinople —
The most imposing defensive structure built in the late antiquity is the one that protected Constantinopolis over 1,000 years. This section of the wall from the west is not restored and can give an idea of the remains. The wall structure consisted on a complex of 3 lines, from back to front —
The main inner wall (or μέγα τείχος), which included 96 towers - 2 visible in this picture, about 5m tick and up to 18m tall, and at its bottom, an upper terrace - the peribolos (περίβολος) to accommodate the defenders —
The lower outer wall, 2m tick and up to 10m (or μικρόν τείχος) hosted smaller towers that covered the inner space between the upper-wall, 4m tick and up 14m tall. At their base was the parateichion (or τὸ ἔξω παρατείχιον) that included posterns to allow protected passage of the defenders to other section of the wall. It was the most ingenious part of the wall as it allowed the defenders outnumbered to concentrate the defense efficiently and will allow to stand many offensives —
The low breastwork and the moat were the last component of the defense, a 10m deep and the first line —
By 395AD, the city was already growth outside its latest fortification built during Constantinus reign, but two events will precipitate the need for the romans to build a 4th walls. The first was the capture and the sack of the eternal city Rome in 410AD by the Visigoths, the second was the presence of the Huns. It is the praetorian prefect Flavius Anthemius that led the construction which was completed by 423AD, doubling the size of the city with a 12km2 fortification.
In 447AD, an earthquake damaged the structure and with the Huns threat, the outer wall was added —
Fun fact, the green and blue faction provided a 16,000 manpower to faster the process, completing the work in 3 months.
The wall saw the Huns, Avars, Rus, Bulgars, Arabs until its last opponent, the Turks in 1453AD.
Note : The crusaders in 1204AD entered the city by the sea wall.

Date : 423 AD until 1453 AD

I believe this was also the least wanted job in Ancient Rome, c. 46 BCE–44 BCE.

January 16th 27 BC Octavian addressed his famous speech in the Senate renouncing his extraordinary powers and returning the restored Republic to the Senate and the Roman people. The Senate then conferred upon Octavian the title of Augustus, a difficult term to translate, which strongly expresses the concept of elevation and expansion. By officially declaring his intent to restore the Republican order, he actually started the new institutional regime: the Empire.

One of the biggest questions we get is "why are you named JANIIS?" Well question no more, and brace yourself for the wild tale that is the origin story of the Roman god, Janus! He was quite the character...🌿💻🏠 | LINK IN BIO |

• Blood and Glory •
« When the people of Rome see this place all they think of is entertainment, but I think of a promise. A promise of blood and death. It is all there ever is, and just the lucky ones get a taste of glory. The guards shove me forward along with the other slaves captured by some rich man in this wretched empire. We’re all property here, just chunks of flesh trained for combat and spectacle. I take no pleasure in killing other men like me, but I’m damn good at it. So the savage Romans always scream my name and offer me applause as I behead, execute, and make the arena tremble. I hate this place. This coliseum built by the cunt Vespasian, where men slaughter each other or get devoured by beasts or trampled by chariots. Blood flows every time I’m forced to fight, and although there is a sense of glory after every victory, I do it all for freedom. The champions of this coliseum can fight to earn the Rudis—a symbol of absolute liberty granted by the emperor, so I am willing to kill every man who comes my way to get it.»

Though I like where the author started the decline of the Roman Republic something about the title bugs me. #betterwordingmaybe #somethingfeelsoff #historygeek #romanhistory #romanrepublic

This beautiful mosaic, is from the dining room (triclinium) of the Chedworth Roman villa, located it Gloucestershire, England.

The villa was built in various phases ranging from the second-century CE to the fourth-century CE.

The villa was discovered in 1864, and hastily excavated and put on display soon after.

The site was acquired by the National Trust in 1924, who have undertook a continuing conservation programme, including cover-buildings and on-site facilities.

The mosaic in the picture, would have impressed guests as they reclined to dine with their hosts.

This mosaic is intricately decorated with fine details.

Geometric patterns in the forms of ‘Solomon knot’ and ‘Guilloche’ styles are interwoven with floral patterns and wave band boarders.

The mosaic also features the personification of the seasons and mythological scenes in incredible detail.

Il 16 gennaio del 27 a.C. il senato riconosceva il titolo di Augustus a Ottaviano. Il titolo, puramente onorifico, diventerà parte della titolatura imperiale: ogni imperatore sarà chiamato imperator caesar augustus, ereditando dunque sia il nome di Cesare che il titolo di Augusto. Convenzionalmente si fa iniziare l'impero romano con questo avvenimento, sebbene Augusto prese tutti i poteri (l'imperium maius et infinitum e la tribunicia potestas) solo nel 23 a.C.
