Latin Fun Site!
 
Here are some interesting tidbits that I learned today, both at the Certamen and through studying!
1. Augustus was born in the Palatine district of Rome.
2. Vaballathus was the son of Zenobia.
3. Pupienus was the name of an emperor.
4. During the war between Aeneas and the Latins, the nymph Juturna knocked Turnus' charioteer out of the chariot to keep T. from meeting Aeneas in single combat.
Just some random facts. Fun ones.
