Hic sunt homini artis gladio pugnandi
Pugnabant retiarii sine parma sed rete
Pugnabant secutores scuta et pugione
Hoplomachi clipeo, hasta, pugione
Thraeces rectangula parma et sica supina
Murmillones provocatoresque scuto et gladio
“Ad augusta per angusta!” Pictures shot at the Roemerfest 2013
I have come from Miletos to Latmos
on a white chariot
drawn by four snow-white horses,
all their trappings silver.
I sailed from Alexandria in a purple trireme
to perform sacred rites
sacrifices and libations
in honour of Endymion.
And here is it.
I now watch at
Endymion’s famous beauty.

The Roman ruins of Augusta Raurica got flooded with Arabian music …
… and exotic belly dancers from the Gruppo Danze Antiche.
At the rhythm of tambourines …
…. and flutes …
it was easy to forget of barbarians and Roman soldiers …
