Round-Up: March 11

Here is a round-up of today's blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you can subscribe by email.

AudioLatin.com: Verses: Here is some more audio for the Vulgate Verses book - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English notes and commentary on these verses also. Today's group includes the famous "vanity of vanities" saying from Ecclesiastes: Vanitas vanitatum, omnia vanitas.

Greek Via Fables: Here's the latest from the Greek fables of Syntipas. Today's fable is Λαγωὸς ἐν φρέατι καὶ ἀλώπηξ, The Hare in The Well and The Fox, a fable which is usually told about a fox who is trapped in a well - whereas here the fox is the one mocking the rabbit inside the well!

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