New at LacusCurtius and Livius.Org

Continuing to put online translations of the orations of Dio of Prusa, Bill has made available Discourse 5, a Libyan myth about a monster that was half woman, half snake. It reminded me of a native Libyan sculpture I once saw in the temple of Slonta (photo). I read a bit about that sanctuary, but none of it referred to Dio, so perhaps the combination of these two pieces of evidence has never been attempted before, or is simply nonsense.

My own contribution to the web is more modest than Bill’s, but some of you may find the tombstone of Viatorinus interesting, a Roman soldier killed by Franks near Cologne. I’m currently more occupied with reorganizing all articles, to prepare for a migration to a Content Management System; the pages on Deutz, Cologne, and Alteburg were restyled. Also restyled is my Amsterdam section, which has nothing to do with Amsterdam, but I think you will like the section on Stone Tablets.
