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,

Sprach(en)vielfalt! 🌏
Fangen wir mit einem Quiz an. Was glaubt ihr, wie viele Sprachen werden aktuell auf der Welt gesprochen?
🌏 Aktuell haben ca. 50% von euch für "etwa 7.000" abgestimmt. Der Sprachenkatalog “Ethnologue” zählt tatsächlich 7.139 lebende Sprachen.
🌏Aufgrund der schwierigen Unterscheidung von Sprachen und Dialekten könnte die Zahl noch deutlich höher sein (darum wird es morgen gehen). Hinzu kommen die vielen Sprachen, die bereits ausgestorben sind.

Around 3000 BCE in eastern #Europe, a Proto-Balto-Slavic #language started to diverge from #ProtoIndoEuropean.

In the early part of the first millennium CE, the #IndoEuropean language known as Proto-#Germanic diverged into an East branch (which included #Gothic) and a Northwest branch.

Northwest then split into West and North branches when Proto-#Norse developed in #Scandinavia. Image
Until the 8th century, #Germanic #languages, including Proto-#Norse, were written in Elder Futhark, the earliest #runic #alphabet.

The name #Futhark comes from the initial phonemes in the names of the first six #runes:
ᚠ ᚢ ᚦ ᚨ ᚱ ᚲ

By the beginning of the #Viking Age around 800 CE, Proto-#Norse had evolved into Old Norse, and #Scandinavia's writing system transitioned from the 24 #runes of Elder #Futhark to Younger Futhark's 16 runes.

The #Swedish #Sparlösa #Runestone from ~800 CE features both #alphabets. Image
