New at LacusCurtius and Livius.Org (4)

I am continuing to upload pictures of Lepcis Magna, like the frieze of the little cargo ship to the right, which can be seen in the Macellum. The photos of the Severan Basilica, which is mentioned in every book on ancient architecture, are now also available. The building is, in my view, a bit overestimated, but some of the columns are indeed splendid. Still: you shouldn’t go to Libya to see the Severan buildings of Lepcis. The Limes Tripolitanus is far more interesting.

Meanwhile, Bill had added Dio Chrysostom‘s Sixteenth Discourse online at LacusCurtius, an address on pain and distress of spirit.
