Hey y’all, I’m reading Seneca’s Medea in translation for my Roman Drama class and going to compare it with the Euripides (in translation) version, but the paper I’m writing is going to focus on marriage law, citizenship law, and custody of children in ancient Greece versus ancient Rome. Does aaaaaanyone have any recommendations for articles relevant to this (preferably for ones I can access or a PDF y’all can share would be awesome!) or any primary sources (in translation) about laws during the times the plays were written suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you all in advance! (I’m going to be hunting for some stuff on my own, of course, but if anyone wants to suggest things, I would appreciate it! I already have “Roman Marriage Law and the Conflict of Seneca’s ‘Medea’” by Laura Abrahamsen, so I’m going to delve into some other stuff and re-read Euripides’s Medea today).

Loki and Sigyn by

Iren Horrors

In Norse mythology, Sigyn is a goddess of fidelity and is the wife of Loki. Sigyn stays with Loki during his punishment. He is bound by the guts of his own son, the only fetters that he cannot destroy, and the venom of a snake drips onto his face. She holds out a bowl to catch the dripping venom. However, when the bowl becomes full she leaves to pour it out. As a result, Loki is described as shaking so violently that the planet shakes, and this process repeats until he breaks free, setting Ragnarök into motion.

Don’t worry, that wasn’t me. I was a deacon during a papal mass at St. John Lateran’ that day.  I think I am called to be a white martyr as opposed to a red one, though both are glorious.

one gifset for every show I love 14/∞: Rome (2005-2007)

These are the words of Gaius Julius Caesar, direct descendant of Venus, proconsul of Gaul, glorious imperator of the northern legions. Citizens, I have returned to Italy with the sole intention of claiming my legal and moral rights. I have no desire for unlawful powers. I will name no man an enemy who does not so declare himself. Even so, the property of those enemies will not be appropriated and their person will remain inviolate as long as their opposition be peaceful. Moreover, to any man that has taken arms against me and now regrets it, I gladly offer total amnesty. However, those that continue to use violence to oppose my legal rights, they shall receive that which they seek to give. Under the auspices of Jupiter Capitolinus, these are the words of Gaius Julius Caesar.
