As an afterthought, it is truly amazing that these ancient artifacts survived at all.
Pompeii was rediscovered in the late 18th Century CE, but it wasn't 'till the 19th Century
CE that excavations began in earnest. The 19th Century was called the Victorian Era,
and Christian ideology prevailed to the extent that many ""questionable" historical
artifacts fell to their wrath. In fact, if you follow this thread back, you will learn that
some of the artifacts were not put on public display 'till around 2000!

Facts must be faced. Christian rule and Jew rule go hand in hand. To end one is to
end the other. The brain-dead Christians don't realize it, but the Jews do. BOTH
belong on the garbage heap of history!

The smell of the city is strong and foul as you make your way down
Trajan’s Market. The narrow streets are hot and overcrowded with
soldiers supervising, civilians running errands, and the aristocracy
taking a stroll in their expensive togas. All around you peddlers
and customers are squabbling and negotiating prices. Amidst all of
the commotion, you can still hear the roars from the Colosseum as
another gladiator meets their violent end. Welcome to Ancient Rome.
While most people have a basic understanding of Ancient Rome, take
a deeper look into the culture that’s credited with shaping the
Western World.

Importantly, this is Ancient Rome at the beginning of the end. Trajan's Market and the Colosseum were both massive undertakings, both done for the entertainment and comfort of the new cosmopolitan Romans. Their culture quickly became debased as more and more time and money was spent on placating the lower class public, and their genetics were polluted with the blood of slaves and foreigners.

"[A]nother gladiator meets their violent end." :?:

Another example of the improper but increasingly trendy use of feminized pronouns, In this case the gender of the single gladiator is supposedly unknown (except that it appears to be a male pictured on the ground, pleading for mercy with a boot in his crotch), so the pronoun describing him that follows should properly be the single pronoun "his" rather than the plural pronoun "their."

Surely there were no girl gladiators who met their end like that. I don't know, we now have girl MMA and naked mud wrestles. Those cosmopolitan Romans might have enjoyed watching that?

Here's where the Jews and feminists at The Washington Post tell America to quit using gendered pronouns: https://www.washingtonpost.com/postever ... 7750a14afd

Apologies for going off the topic of Romans & Art with discussion of not-so-subtle feminization of pronouns in our language. Further discussion of this, one of Dr. William Pierce's pet peeves, fits better here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1748&p=12985#p12985

Excerpt:
The [University of Minnesota] policy would also allow men claiming to “identify” as transgender to use women's locker rooms and bathrooms, as well as participate in activities for men or women. And UMN's website already pushes the insanity, allowing students to register as “male, female, agender, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, nonbinary, two spirit, or nothing at all. Among the “pronoun options” are he, she, ze, the singular “they,” none and “prefer not to specify.”
