Roman chronicler Claudius Aelianus (mid-second century AD) wrote A Collection of Miscellaneous History; (translated by McCrindle) wherein he says the following regarding Ox races in India 👇 @dhingramahima9 @AartiAuthor @VaruKrutika @icedtea28 @harshasherni @apparrnnaa :-
“Oxen races: C. xxiv. The Indians make much ado also about the oxen that run fast; and both the king himself and many of the greatest nobles take contending views of their swiftness, and make bets in gold and silver, and think it no disgrace to stake their money on these animals.
They yoke them in chariots, and incur hazard on the chance of victory. The horses that are yoked to the car run in the middle with an ox on each side, and one of these wheels sharp round the turning-post and must run thirty stadia...

The India They Saw by Sandhya Jain. Nice read so far. So fascinating & informative book detailing the accounts of foreign travellers, diplomats, monks etc who visited India between 500 BCE and 700 CE. #StayAtHomeSaveLives ⁦⁦@dhingramahima9goodreads.com/book/show/3170…
There r some interesting insights about Indians as imagined & misinterpreted by some Greek diplomats and Historians..
.. like one Ancient Greek Historian, who is regarded as Father of History in Western World, writes that Indians had lot of gold bcoz we used to steal them from gold digging ants of size same as average men. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ @UnbiasedSecular @iDrKaRiShMa @VertigoWarrior @apparrnnaa @icedtea28

The last sub-thread of this 4th roll is about the destruction of the site of Babisqa.
#ancient #Syria #ruins
The expedition of Butler, in the early XX C., mapped the settlement of Babisqa, located near #Aleppo, and N of Mout #Barisha. The archaeological settlement, dated from the II C. B.C. is very close to the Turkish border.

tinyurl.com/y4kqpvno
Originally Babisqa settlement extended for ±7.75 ha, at the heart of which lied the central square, with a sort of Agora used until the 5th-6th C. AD.
The ruins included the last Byzantine basilica of Syria, St. Sergius.

Lunar-dynasties of Kuru & Yadu was(/is) associated w/Northern India. And, Turvasu, Anu & Dhruyu/Druid w/the barbaric lands of Europe & Central Asia. Considering Strength-side w/North India, or Ida ruled by Waxing Moon. And, Solar side (lunar-cursed), or Jachin w/Europe & C-Asia.
Esoteric-Vulcan falling under Esoteric-Jupiter should be the natural while the other way round is lunar-curse of Pingala, like the Sharaba (w/support of Shiva) defeating NaraSimha (Ugra/Sea-Man-Lion). Sun & Moon are natural allies but their direction are opposite, & Forward-only.
Mercury/Aquarius correlates with Pusha/Dhananjaya, & Taurus/Vulcan with Aryama, Narada & Pitris. Susena correlates w/Mahatala. Ugrasena, Vrishni or Bull correlates w/Mahatala (Thule), but possibly from the left-scale, as Saramā (or Indra's messenger) is in the opposite sign, etc.

#Ancient Indian narratives of King Shibi, Dove & Falcon have deeper meaning than mere historical events of the so-called past. Meaning is vast, manifold & beyond the ordinary 5/senses. It's cosmically woven in the fabric of time, macro & micro, & let me clarify it to some extent.
Strength (Boaz/Black), Waxing moon, Feminine (not gender specifics), Wisdom, Kavi (Hymns/Arts), Structured/Emotions & ancient-Indian/centered-religion & the likes is generally attributed to the right-brain, & left nostril/Ida, which is ruled over by the Moon. Pingala (Sun, +) is
Beauty (Jachin/White, Logic, Science-Math), right-nostril & left-brain, & ruled over by the Sun, which is one of the functional malefic-planets, along w/Mars, Saturn & Rahu-Ketu (only retrograde). Don't think of "Malefic" as yours mere conveniences of "good" & "bad" standards!!

“My name is here presented more to be understood than to be read” said once a #Roman senator.
For my #EarlyMedievalPills, let’s explore what monograms can tell us about changes in political culture & social communication between late antiquity & #Carolingian times.
1/
Monogrammatic culture has its roots in the #classical world. Producers used monograms to mark mass-produced objects such as pottery. We also see them on Hellenistic coins. However, they didn’t encode the name of the issuing authority, but functioned as control marks.
2/
Influenced by Hellenistic models, #Roman emperors adopted monograms on their coins. They were used to encode the emperor’s name thus becoming personal graphic devices that could also mark certain objects the trade of which was an imperial monopoly.

When visiting #Rome, tourists usually (and comprehensibly) focus on its #ancient remains. Today for the series #EarlyMedievalPills I'll take you through the #Carolingian city of Pope Paschal I (817-24) who, in only 7 years, left a permanent mark on #Roma's sacred topography 1/11
First I need to tell you about his family: he was the son of Bonosus and Theodora and he was very attached to his mother whom he wanted to be immortalised in the stunning #mosaics decorating that little jewel that is the Chapel of St Zeno in Santa Prassede #Roma 2/11
"Theodora Episcopa": lots of speculation about the reasons why she was called bishop-ess. Two possibilities: either Paschal I's father was a bishop and the honorific title extended to his wife, or Paschal paid homage to his mother by granting her a title of distinction 3/11

1) This #CDAN blind looks solved & exposes yet another sicko crime network, this time #SoutheastAsia. It connects several interesting items to #QAnon #crumbs. Don't eat while reading.

Lets unravel it.

2) Starting with the country in question, it's #Laos. This is the Kings Romans Casino in a remote corner of Laos. Matches the #blind. Poverty? Dead poor. Ranks 9 of 10 in the region, and #135 globally. More about the casino...

3) The blind says that "about a decade ago" it was funded. See below, the lease with the government was signed in 2007, that fits. It's a 99 year lease. And the government gets a 20% cut. Ding ding ding.

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
