This is one of the better things I've seen in a VERY long time.

Now all we need are some of the classical Greek Pankration artworks reenacted by modern MMA fighters...

I like this one. I remember hearing in art class that ancient pankration started by 'toeing the line' like old timey boxing.

Augustus,

Awesome stuff. You may have too much time on your hands, but you are doing funny stuff with it.

In college I actually majored in Classics, too. I love the history of the Roman Republic: scipio, marius, the grachii bros, sulla, cinna, cicero, pompey, crassus, cato, ceasar. And of course my fav, clodius. Just fascinating. I am half wat thru the Roman Revolution by Syme. Have you read it?

Also i highly recommend goldsworthy's Life of a Colossus, about Caesar...

Keep up the good work!

EazyG - Augustus,

Awesome stuff. You may have too much time on your hands, but you are doing funny stuff with it.

Awesome post, I can tell you are a bigger fan of the Roman Republic than the Roman Empire, which is the same with me! I haven't read the Roman Revolution by Syme, but I have read the latter one, Life of a Colossus, about Caesar, it was pretty good.

Right now I am reading The Conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar, I have read this book a while ago but it is such a hard read that I felt like I should read it again to fully comprehend it. 

My favorite Roman history writer is definitely Livy, I have read a lot of his work, I highly reccomend him. Plutarch is also another favorite of mine because he likes to compare Romans with Greeks, which is a common trend in this major. Have you read any from these two?

Also, if you are a classics major, I assume you know some Latin, so de historia romana dicere semper amo!
