Just a few lines to introduce myself.
I have chosen Marcus Licinius Clarus as my name. The name that my parents gave me was Mark Anthony Romano.
My ancestry is 1/2 Italian & 1/2 English.
I am 52 years-old. I am studying for my masters degree in mathematics (on to the doctorate, I hope), but I have always passionately loved the history of Rome and, so, picked up Latin along the way.
My other loves are classical music and astronomy.
I collect rocks and cactii – yes, cactus plants.
I love dogs.
My patroness deity is Hecate. I would like to serve as her priest, if no one has taken up that role.
Nice to see in our midst another man with an excellent education! I am sure that within the Roman Republic you can best apply your knowledge and great life experience for the benefit of the Res Publica – our common cause!
We are about to celebrate the Ludi Rei Publicae. Part of these games includes a virtual chariot race. The details are here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=248
I’m the current leader (Dominus Factionis) of the Factio Albata, or Whites. We are looking for citizens who want to have some fun at the virtual races, and are looking for a team. If you wish to join the best faction, the Whites, it is easy, just sign up here: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=294 🙂
Then register for the games here: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=291
Welcome! Mathematics in indeed nice subject and we soon have a nice scientific section here. I have studied from very young age all kind of sciences, physics, mathematics, philosophy, ancient history, languages, even though modern University is a little disappointment to me: somehow it kills the joy of knowledge/learning and make us to compete from academic positions while we should be working together without having to think our own benefit. In real life I work with computers (in quite basic level, i have no time for challenging work tasks because my scientific and historical hobbies take so much time).
Roman citizen is always eager to get knowledge about his/her environment and looking constantly for wisdom and virtues, in all levels, academic, practical, etc….
