One Page Report: Architect During the height of the power of the Roman Empire, few places on earth represented such centers of culture and majesty as the major Ancient Roman cities. Though there are many factors that contributed to the overall importance and characteristics of a city, perhaps none are as significant as the influence of the ancient Roman architects. Architecture and buildings had effects on all areas of Roman life, from leisure and recreational activities to places of business, from the lower class to the emperor himself. This is why the role of the ancient Roman architect was so important and influential. Probably the most necessary examples of masterful architecture are seen in the fabulous Roman waterways, the aqueducts. Without the careful design and skilled construction of these naturally important structures, it is unlikely that the city could have flourished as it did. In some cities of the former empire, though not Rome itself, because of their flawless design and natural practicality, the aqueducts still function as major waterways today. As with all the rest of the examples of Roman architecture, it goes to show just how vital and influential were the roles of the Ancient Roman architects. Back to Reports

Ancient Roman and Greek Coins, page 2
Here is a large (27 mm diameter) Roman copper coin (with some silver on the surface, a nummus also called a follis ) of Severus II , Caesar from 305 - 306 AD and Augustus (= emperor) from 306 - 307 AD. The legend, FL VAL SEVERVS NOB CAES, tells us his name, "FLavius VALerius SEVERUS"
and that he was "NOBilis CAESar" = "Noble Caesar" at the time and not yet emperor (Augustus).
The reverse says "PERPETVITAS AVGG" ("immortality of the emperors" [like the word "perpetual"]) and shows Roma (the city, personified) seated left holding a tiny Victory with a wreath, and a sceptre. An oval shield is below. The coin was minted at ALE(xandria), Egypt. Designs . Unlike modern coins, there are a huge number of different designs. Roman coins usually have a head in profile on one side ( Apollo on a coin of the Roman Republic). The other side (reverse) could depict a goddess , ship, lion , temple, soldier, chariot battle scene (and a stirrup?) , or any of a huge number of other designs. On the obverse they have legends which name the emperor and give some of his titles. Legends on the reverse usually relate to the reverse design.
Greek coins are beautiful and often have a head of a god or goddess on one side, but animals and birds such as lions, horses, stags

83. Rome: The Rise Of The Emperors
the integration of foreigners into the roman system of number of foreigners withinthe empire made it were often compounded by brutal or incompetent emperors.
MARCH OF THE TITANS - A HISTORY OF THE WHITE RACE Chapter 12 : Rome: The Age of the Caesars - Pre-Christian Rome Part Two: The Rise of the Emperors As recounted in part 1 of this section, Rome had been founded on a racial amalgamation of Old Europeans and Latini Indo-Europeans. Out of this potent mix came the great Roman Republic, which, after defeating the Carthaginians, quickly became the dominant power in the Mediterranean. THE LATE REPUBLIC (133 - 30 BC ) In 133 BC, the ruler of an independent state in central Asia Minor (Turkey), one Pergamum, died. When his will was read, he had left his country to Rome. This somewhat bizarre wish - which was duly carried out - served as a springboard for the later Roman occupation of the rest of Asia Minor and the Near East. The period from 133 BC to 30 BC is known as the late Republic, during which Rome itself was to experience civil strife not seen since the days of the Latini insurrection against the Etruscans. In addition to this, Rome also engaged in a number of foreign wars. SLAVES - THE SEEDS OF ROME'S DECLINE From the very earliest times the Romans had also been importing slaves into their homeland - a policy which was to grow into a major commercial activity in Rome itself - but also ultimately to lead to Rome being filled with all manner of people who bore no resemblance to the Romans themselves. Slaves from the Far East, Africa and the Semitic speaking world filled the slave houses of Rome in their hundreds of thousands.

The Dark Millennium
From 395 AD to 1377
Western Empire created under Honorius Theodosius I , last to rule (378-395) over a single, united Roman Empire. He had made war as far away as Britain and the Balkans, attempted retirement for a period of debauchery and gluttony, only to be roused by a great war against Eugenius, a usurper in Rome. He had been to Rome what Franz Joseph was to the Austro-Hungarian Empire: the end.
Britain declared itself independent, and Honorius agreed.

Attila stopped. Pope Leo the Great dissuaded Attila the Hun, face-to-face at the gates of Mantua, from invading Central Italy.
Pope Leo then dissuaded Genseric the Vandal, face-to-face at the gates of Rome, from burning Rome and torturing its population, but the city was looted.
Fall of the Roman Empire . Odoacer the Barbarian became King of Italy and forced Romulus Augustulus to abdicate as the last Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. This left Constantinople as the sole capital of the Roman Empire - thereafter called Byzantium. The position of the Popes, the bishops of Rome, is strengthened.
Rome shrinks to its lowest ebb . Gothic invasions under Theodoric inflicted repeated sieges and massacres. Starvation and rampant plague reduced Rome to a ghost town for a few months. The whole civic structure collapsed, leaving only the Church.

Ancient Rome and the Holy Land
T he Etruscans were originally the only influence on the number of towns that were to eventually become the Roman Empire. Around 500 B.C. the Roman people overthrew its kings and established a republic. This was to be a volatile form of government for the next several centuries until its eventual end with Julius Caesar. Augustus then became the first Roman emperor in 27 BC and restored peace to a prior period of strife and unrest. Rome's success was established through a well disciplined and organized army. The Romans took pride in their military conquests and expanded their empire to become the dominant power in the Meditteranean region, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East Architecture flourished in Rome with the building of the empire. Emperors built temples, stadiums, and many magnificent buildings to reflect Rome's strength and opulence. The Colosseum, built around 75 A.D., is perhaps the most famous example. A huge amphitheater with seating for 50,000 people, it was the center of entertainment in Rome. Decorative columns and arches surrounded this architectural wonder that managed to survive into modern times. Prosperity flourished in Roman times because of the established systems of trade and coinage. From Egypt to Britain, from Spain to the Far East, people bartered and sold goods of crops, animals, jewelry, spices, textiles, and pottery. The most economical way to transport these goods was by ship through seas and rivers. However, the phenomenal growth of the Empire caused high demand in all areas as old cities grew and new ones were established.

HOW THE ROMANS LIVED How the City of Rome Looked. Majestic indeed was the great city which had conquered the world. In the center, thronged with people coming and going, was the famous Forum or public square which had witnessed so many stirring scenes, from the exile of Tarquin to the funeral of Caesar. It was surrounded by magnificent temples and public buildings upon which had been lavished untold sums. Round about rose the celebrated seven hills, set thick with dwellings and palaces. Of these the best known is the Capitoline, where stood the temple of Jupiter and the citadel which had once defied the attack of the Gauls. In their temples and other public buildings the Romans had very largely copied the Greeks. But the simple and graceful temples of Greece were not gorgeous enough for them, and they added such features as colored marbles and columns richly carved with leaves and flowers. The Romans, however, had some original ideas. They knew how to build arched roofs and doorways,
and also how to put lofty domes on many of their temples. They learned, too, how to construct large buildings of brick and concrete instead of those entirely of stone. Of most of the notable buildings which once adorned Rome the visitor now sees only broken remains. About the ruined Forum we can see their crumbling arches and perhaps trace their foundations. Yet to this day one temple built in the time of the Roman Empire still stands to show us how a Roman structure actually looked. With its lofty dome and ornamental porch the famous Pantheon carries the traveler back to the days when Caesar's word was law and his legions unconquerable.
