Well done, your Imperial Majesty

Good grief, even Antoninus Pius has a blog now. It’s been a fine year for him: he’s currently celebrating the designation of his Wall across Scotland as a World Heritage Site and the rediscovery of his wife at Sagalassos (in sculpture form, that is.  She died over 1800 years ago but no doubt has a blog of her own somewhere).

I haven’t read his entire online opus, so don’t know if he records the reactions of his loyal troops on being told that Hadrian’s Wall was in the wrong place and they were going to have to start building all over again further north. It must have been interesting.

Anyway, many congratulations to him on finally getting the recognition he deserves.
