A glimpse of teenage life in ancient Rome - Ray Laurence
Romulus is an essential part of Rome's foundation myth. Romulus wanted to found a city on the Palatine Hill; Remus preferred the Aventine Hill. They agreed to determine the site through augury, but when each claimed the results in his own favor, they quarreled and Remus was killed. Romulus founded the new city, named it Rome after himself, and created its first legions and senate. The new city grew rapidly. According to Laurence, Lucius would participate in an arranged marriage to a girl 10 years younger than him. Liberalia is a particularly important Roman festival. Domitian was Roman Emperor from 81 to 96. A strigil was a small, curved, metal tool used in Rome to scrape dirt and sweat from the body before effective soaps became available. The Forum of Augustus is one of the Imperial forums of Rome, Italy, built by Augustus. Patrons, clients, slaves, and Freedmen -- one of the main institutions of Roman life was the dependent relationship established between a patrons and his client.
