Another small milestone in Europe's war.

Today is Day 450 of #Russia's unprovoked and illegal invasion of its neighbour.

This is the start of Friday's daily thread. Already another day of missile attacks.

For Thursday's news, click and scroll here:
The night attack by #Russia started with drones and ended with more cruise missiles.

Only 3 of the 6 missiles fired from the Black Sea were intercepted according to #Ukraine and there were hits in #KryvyiRih

16 more drones were shot down. Image
In #KryvyiRih a 64-year-old woman was seriously injured.

A private business was hit. An administration building and workshops were severely damaged by the blast and subsequent fires.
Another man received slight injuries but did not go to hospital.

Welcome to Saturday's #UkraineWar thread on Day 444 of #Russia's invasion.

All the news as always throughout the day in one handy thread, but with a fun #Eurovision twist today which I'll explain in the next tweet.

If you want to buy me a coffee there's a link in my bio🙏💙💛
So what's all this about #Eurovision ?

Well to mark #Ukraine's "hosting" of the final in #Liverpool tonight, in my tweets today there will be winning song titles🎶 in some of the posts (not all)

Just for fun. Reply if you spot one, as it will help fight the shadow ban on my a/c
Give yourself bonus points if you know the country and year the song won!

Anyway if you missed anything yesterday, you can review Friday's thread here. A day when we had all kinds of everything going on:

Hello again. It's Friday 12 May + Day 443 of the #UkraineRussiaWar

I'm back again. Another daily thread for all the news that matters in one place.

Two big developments y'day - #Ukraine's counter offensive prep + long range weapons arrive! Catch up here:
First a strange tale from the far east of #Russia where a private helicopter cut through power lines during a "hard landing"

The Mi-2's landing cut off power to the Transneft station in Primorsky Krai.
It's so remote it took 2 days to find the chopper & the pilot's disappeared! ImageImageImageImage
A big increase in #Russia's manpower losses in the last 24 hours. Still a lot of equipment being hit by #Ukraine too.

Ancient Coin of the Day: Today is about Didius Julianus, the man who bought the position of Emperor from the Praetorian Guard on this day, 28 March, in AD 193. #ACOTD #Numismatics #Rome 🧵

Image: RIC IV Didius Julianus 1; MoFA Boston (1999.514). Link -… ImageImage
Following their killing of Pertinax on 28 March AD 193, the Praetorian Guard decided to auction off the position of emperor to the highest bidder. Didius Julianus won the day, promising 25,000 sesterces per man (Dio 74.11.5), beginning his brief nine-week reign.
The Obverse of this coin shows a laureate portrait of Didius Julianus, with the Legend IMP CAES M DID IVLIAN AVG – ‘Emperor Caesar Marcus Didius Julianus Augustus’. Image

#Rome Fell Once.

1000 years was added to our timeline to make the #HolyRomanEmpire seem more ancient than it was.

The #PhantomTime added by the #Usurpers has been well documented [read my timeline]

...Let Go..

30k 'Roman' sites and NONE are built on earlier Roman sties?👇
For this time period [800-900 years] #Strata MUST BE in this order:

Late Antiquity > Antiquity > Early Middle Ages.

Yet with over 5k Early Middle Age sites and 30k Roman sites found-dead by the #Usurpers..

There is a clear pattern of attributing Early Antiquity 'Roman' sites to later 'Middle Aged' Roman sites

When they obviously used the same building style, roof tiles, glass, Architecture, and material FROM the same designs 800 years earlier?

With NO evolution of building ?

The boat in distress at sea was known to the authorities and ended deadly. While the Italian government obstructs civil sea rescue, and its own Coast Guard is visibly overwhelmed, distress calls go unanswered. #Italy watched 30 people drown!

Saturday morning, 10.32 am: 9 hours after @alarm_phone reported the first distress call, our Airborne crew sights the boat with 47 people on board. 2 minutes later, #Seabird2 sends a Mayday Relay to all stations. The coordinates are given. A rescue is urgent.

@alarm_phone Immediately two emails are sent to the Italian rescue coordination center in #Rome. As the boat is in the Libyan search and rescue zone, #Italy wants nothing to do with the rescue and refers to the so-called Libyan Coast Guard.

El Circo Máximo

El Circo Máximo, de unos 600 metros de largo y 150 de ancho, podía albergar quizás -según las estimaciones de Plinio el Viejo- a 250.000 espectadores (entre un cuarto y un quinto de la población de la ciudad en la época imperial)

y sigue siendo el mayor edificio de espectáculos jamás construido por el hombre. Se dice que el emplazamiento del circo fue el de la famosa carrera que distrajo a los sabinos mientras se producía la violación de sus mujeres.

Según Livio, las primeras estructuras de madera se remontan a la época de Tarquinio Prisco, y en época republicana se construyeron varios edificios para conformar el circo, primero de madera y luego de piedra, hasta que lo completó Augusto,

#Zoroastrian #Kurdistan
Hi all, so I realized I haven't been posting about Zoroastrianism in #KRG (South #Kurdistan) lately, so here are some latest videos, got them from Zoroastrian organizations in KRG.
Zoroastrianism is a recognized religion within Kurdistan & has grown (1/?)…
.. grown considerably in recent years. Zoroastrians have always existed in Kurdistan ever since Iranian peoples has settled. Not even islam was able to kill off the religion in the region (they tried), and as late as the 1200s there were Zoroastrian principalities fighting islam Image
From the Tayrãhids of the 1200s to now, Zoroastrians survived in hiding, in fear. However, in supreme irony it was islam and the evil it brought in the from of #ISIS that created a modern "revival" of the faith as many people were repulsed by the face of islam presented by isis Image

🇮🇹⚡️Roman statue of Hercules pops up during sewer repairs in Rome

An ancient Roman statue of Hercules has been discovered during repairs to the drains under a park in Rome. The statue is possibly 2,000 years old.
#rome #roma #archeology #hercules
It was the archaeological park itself that shared the discovery on Facebook. “The domain held a big surprise for us,” it sounds. “It is a life-size marble statue that we can identify with certainty as Hercules because of the club and the lion's cloak.”
The impressive find is believed to date back to Roman Imperial times (27 BC to 476 AD), and was found around the second mile marker along the ancient Appia Road, a famous historic road.

Oh, Rome, the eternal city, the magnificent place, the capital of the mighty #RomanEmpire. Right?

Wrong. Ok, right, but only partially.

The capital (s) of the Roman Empire (as there was more than one) and the shift to the East.

A thread 🧵
A town founded in 753 BC at the banks of Tiber, by the first century BC, Rome turned into the most important city in the Mediterranean. Its optimal location, in the middle of #Italy, right in the centre of the Mediterranean basin, resulted in the rapid growth of the city. /1
It also helped that #Rome was the capital of the rising power, the Roman Republic, which by the end of the first century BC, defeated all its major rivals, including Carthage and the Hellenistic Kingdoms in the East. /2

🧵 With New Year approaching, I thought I'd share some of my favourite moments and photos from my 2022 archaeological travels, which have seen me travel to Egypt, Turkey, Hadrian's Wall and Algeria.
#Throwback2022 #archaeologytravel #FollowingHadrian Image
Sailing on Lake Nasser in Egypt between Aswan and Abu Simbel and visiting the temples that used to lie on the banks of the Nile but were moved when the Aswan High Dam flooded the region in the 1960s.
#Throwback2022 #archaeologytravel #Egypt ImageImageImageImage
Visiting the relocated Wadi es-Sebua temple with its beautiful avenue of sphinxes. The temple was built during the reign of Ramesses II and was dedicated to the deified pharaoh, Amun-Ra, and Ra-Harakhty.

When Vittorio Amedeo II from #Savoy, the 24th of #December 1713 was crowned King of #Sicily (as seen in the relief from #Palermo's cathedral) he reached the Royal title, a dream his dinasty was seeking for centuries. #Utrecht #Spain #France #Italy Continue #thread 🧵
What he could not know is that in #Sicily he found something maybe more precious, for sure a longer lasting asset than his title as King of Sicily: an #architect from #Messina called Fillippo Juvarra. Continue #thread
Juvarra already worked in #Rome and Naples, pupil of the famous Carlo Fontana (see pic), an #architect from #Ticino, hence of Lombard culture, of paramount importance for Juvarra. In #Messina the sicilian architect was able to offer his services to Vittorio Amedeo II. Continue

The #Milan-#Rome high-speed rail: one of the busiest long-distance routes in Europe.

A mini-thread about evolution of supply before&after #covid.

This is the current weekly timetable: 89 trains/day per direction (of which 84 HS), for two companies, @lefrecce and @italotreno
Peak frequency is quite incredible. For example btw 5pm and 6pm there is a HS train every 5 to 15 minutes (per direction)!

2019 supply was... a bit lower, approx 85 trains/day. This is a good news.
For comparison, 2008 (before HS) trains were 27/day/dir, of which 18 fast.
The evolution is interesting: the chart represents supply (ball size) and speed (x axis) from 2008 to 2022.

Supply grew since 2012, when competition started.

Comm. speed has been constant until 2019.

Ik ben van #Utrecht naar #Rome gefietst en dan kom je nogal veel fietsinfrastructuur tegen. Buiten Nederland en vooral in Italie wil dat nog wel eens opvallend en bizar zijn.

1) Het werkelijk prachtige fietspad op de foto is de route waarmee je uit het noorden Rome in fietst. Image
2) Aan alles komt een eind en in dit geval is dat een trap, overigens zonder waaschuwing, maar wel dicht tegen het centrum van Rome. Elk voordeel zijn nadeel. Image
3) Verderop kun je wel weer langs de Tiber fietsen. Ook een mooi fietspad. Er is alleen een maar. Het fietspad heeft ter hoogte van het centrum geen toeritten meer en tegen de hoge trappen zeulen mensen hun fiets niet op. Het resultaat is een stil fietspad in wereldstad Rome.

A year ago I boarded a train in #Istanbul to investigate one scientist's claim of rediscovering Silphion, a legendary herb thought to have gone extinct 2,000 years ago.

It still grows in the heart of #Turkey—and it's delicious.

All involved were able to keep this secret for a year while the Nat Geo team put together this amazing
package. Thanks to @kristinromey @_alicezoo @mallorybenedict Nirupa Rao
For space reasons, this was removed from the article:
"One of the only things silphion wasn’t used as, surprisingly, was a love potion. A close reading of Greek and Roman texts shows no evidence of it being prescribed as a contraceptive or aphrodisiac...

In Gallia Belgica e Gallia Lugdunenese, due to the heavy taxation, a
rebellion was burst, lead by Julius Floro and Sacroviro two Gaul noblemen that served in the Roman auxiliary army as officers (2/8)
While legions moved to the area, the rebels had time to pillage some cities and villages while freeing some new allies. Between them, from a gladiators’ school, they freed a great number of “crupellari” (3/8)
