Help for SPQR fans


Over V years have passed since I discovered S.P.Q.R. on the Internet, hosted at Time-Warner Pathfinder. A community of dedicated afficianados assisted each other with the knottiest puzzles, and that archive of hints and tips was lost for a great while, until one of the original patrones conscripti deciphered the code and restored the history. Now that all hints are back in their glory, I am retiring the chapter hints I long held here in trust, and join my fellow original fans in saying, "gratias tibi ago" to Festus Didius for this service to Rome.

Unofficial SPQR Walkthrough

SPQRListed also in Rome, but deserving of special mention for those SPQR CD-ROM owners. This comprehensive site is a complete walkthrough with gentle hints all the way up to a shove in the right direction, so be warned about spoilarius before you give the treat of figuring out a puzzle yourself.  Multas gratias to Venusta Cornelius for this excellent site.(N.B. site no longer active; if I find she has posted it elsewhere, the link will be updated).

Julius Caesar

CaesarA truly outstanding first Web site by my old amica, Heraklia, this comprehensive Web site takes the reader from youth to consulate, through battles and civil reforms. Of particular interest as well are Caesar's contemporaries: Pompey, Cicero, Brutus, Antony, Cato, et al.


A compendium of the many excellent articles Cornellia wrote for AncientSites and the AncientVine. People and places from five ancient cultures around the Mediterranean, this is indeed a delightful bunch.
