Round-Up: September 24

I hope everybody had a great weekend! Here is a round-up of today's Bestiaria Latina blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives).

Latina Carolina: In the latest post, I've provided 30 proverbs specially selected for Capitulum I of the Lingua Latina: Familia Romana textbook. Based on the progression of grammar as presented in the textbook, I'll create a similar list of 30 proverbs for each chapter. Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English translations and commentary on the proverbs, too. Today's group includes Ex verbis fatuum, ex sonitu cognoscimus ollas, a saying that always makes me think of the English truism, "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt!"

For an image today, I'll let the Roman Emperor of the Week widget supply us with a portrait of this week's emperor!
