tweeten nedan utlöste ryggmärgsreflex hos Fredrik #Wenell som kallar sig kristen o teolog o är ledarskribent på #sekten_Pingst’s mörkertidning #Dagen. #sekter drivs av upproriskhet mot både #GudsOrd o msklig överhet. De hatar underordning under #överhet som inte lyder dem.
2. lyssnar inte t Guds ord ty de har inte Gud t Fader (Jh8)
3. har inte Kristus som herre, såsom mannen är herre över kvinnan.
4. älskar inte Kristus, är inte Kristi vänner, ty de bevarar inte hans ord, Guds ord.
5. underordnar sig inte under Guds ord.

6. upphäver o ersätter Guds ord m syndiga mskrs lögner.
7. är bärare av fariséernas ande, de omintetgör Guds ord.

8. Kristi fördömanden över fariséerna drabbar alla sekter i alla tider. #Gehennas_barn kan inte omvändas, blir dubbelt värre varje generation #svpol

#PeristiwaHariIni : Hari ini 1,958 tahun yang lalu, kota Rom terbakar & dikatakan maharajanya, Nero menjadi punca.

Ini satu untaian. Image
Kebakaran bermula di deretan kedai yang menyimpan barangan mudah terbakar di kawasan Circus dekat Bukit Palatine. Malam itu berangin, menggalakkan api pantas merebak ke seluruh Circus yang bangunannya dibina rapat-rapat & meluas ke kawasan sekitarnya.

Kebakaran diburukkan lagi apabila dilaporkan kumpulan pencuri melempar obor & menghentikan sebarang usaha memadamkan api untuk mereka mengaut barangan yang ditinggalkan. Dikatakan mereka mendakwa bahawa mendapat arahan untuk berbuat demikian.

Ancient Coin of the Day: I’ve been remiss in coin threads this week, so let’s get back to it with this base-silver tetradrachm from Alexandria, ca. AD 66-67, one of a series celebrating Nero.

#ACOTD #Nero #Games

Image: RPC 5300/5. Link -
This is a great example of Julio-Claudian provincial coinage, part of a series of five base-silver tetradrachms that were issued by Alexandria to celebrate Nero's victories on the 'festival circuit' of Greek games.
The Legend that was universal to the series was ΝΕΡΩ ΚΛΑΥ ΚΑΙΣ ΣΕΒ ΓΕΡ ΑΥ - 'Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus' - with the Legend on the Reverse being specific to each set of games, in this case ΠΟΣΕΙΔΩΝ ΙΣΘΜΙΟΣ – ‘Isthmian Poseidon’.

Ancient Coin of the Day: As today is quite the Neronian anniversary, let’s take a look at an interesting series of coins he issued, the Decursio sestertii of AD 62-68. #ACOTD #Nero #Decursio

Image: RIC Nero 170; Münzkabinett Berlin (18220881). Link -…
These coins form a novel and innovative series in the final years of Nero's reign and have provoked much discussion through their martial imagery, not least because they are very much at odds with the typical Neronian depictions.
Nero is not famed for his military coinage, being for more keen to advertise peace, such as on this aureus of AD 64-65 with a Reverse featuring the Temple of Janus.

So I went to the #NeroExhibition @britishmuseum... Image
You cannot have a #NeroExhibition without the back story. Cue Augustus (and his swooshy locks), Caligula (and his cute eyelashes) and a few of the other Julio-Claudians before we meet the protagonist: Nero. #NeroExhibition ImageImageImageImage

Ancient Coin of the Day: A bloody gorgeous aureus of AD 55, with an Obverse depicting the jugate busts of Nero and Agrippina the Younger.#ACOTD #Nero

Image: RIC Nero 6
The Obverse here places Nero in the ascendancy, with the Legend - NERO CLAVD DIVI F CAES AVG GERM IMP TR P COS - stressing his connection to Claudius and appending the raft of imperial titles and powers, including his Tribunician Power and his holding of the consulship.
The Reverse's Legend - AGRIPP AVG DIVI CLAVD NERONIS CAES MATER EX S C - is entirely that of Agrippina: 'Agrippina Augusta, wife of the Deified Claudius, mother of Nero Caesar: by decree of the Senate'. The central design is that of an elephant-drawn quadriga...

Ancient Coin of the Day: A silver denarius of Nero, from AD 55. The Obverse is decorated with jugate busts of Nero and his mother, Agrippina. #ACOTD #Nero

Image: RIC Nero 7
The Obverse Legend, NERO CLAVD DIVI F CAES AVG GERM IMP TR P COS - 'Nero Caesar Augustus Germanicus son of Divine Claudius, hailed victorious commander, with Tribunician power, Consul, is a raft of imperial titles and official positions designed to impart legitimacy to Nero.
The use of the busts of both Nero and his mother appeared on his early coinage, with a particularly famous example being this aureus of AD 54, notable for the same Legend as our denarius, though without the title of Consul, a position he did not assume until AD 55.

Ancient History Quote of the Day: "Meanwhile, the men on horseback arrived and so he committed suicide, uttering that famous remark 'Jupiter, what an artist perishes with me!'" (Dio 63.29.2).


Image: Nero and Agrippina, from the Sebasteion at Aphrodisias
On this day - 9 June - in AD 68, the Emperor Nero "last of the descendants of Aeneas and of Augustus" took his own life, in the face of provincial rebellion and senatorial enmity, uttering his famous last remark "Qualis artifex pereo!"
Nero had panicked in the face of the rebellion in Gaul under Gaius Julius Vindex, although this rebellion in itself came to little, as it was defeated at Vesontio by Verginius Rufus with the legions of upper Germany.

In case you haven't heard, #ZAO is a Chinese app which completely blew up since Friday. Best application of 'Deepfake'-style AI facial replacement I've ever seen.

Here's an example of me as DiCaprio (generated in under 8 secs from that one photo in the thumbnail) 🤯
It's already under a lot of fire for user privacy protection under their terms and conditions. So consider this my sacrifice to demonstrate so you don't have to give up your portrait identity rights 😅
It’s clear that #ZAO isn’t really going for "accuracy" per se, but rather a "subjective" good looking result. Similar to a beauty cam, it retains facial structure of the original actors, so the cherry picked results more or less always looks good and encourages users to share.

Okay, we need to have a chat about Roman portraiture. My feed is now full of horrifying #Nero reconstructions and I highly suggest that you don't look directly into his eyes because he might steal your soul. Thanks to @p_historians and @Lindsay_Powell for photos.
First off, what I shall henceforth refer to as The Interpretation, side by side with the marble portrait it was apparently heavily based on. All credit for THAT to Césares de Roma. The bust is in the Capitoline. Nero did not look like this and here's why: #classicstwitter
If you look carefully at the bust, you'll notice some pretty obvious discoloration. That's because EVERYTHING except for the eyes, nose, and fringe of hair along the forehead is a 17th century restoration. IT IS NOT ANCIENT.
