Three days after the ides of October

We played another round of the Race through Rome today to continue to practise our verbs.  Very well done to you all!

Your only new homework is to practise your vocabulary on Quizlet.  If you have not already done so, please also finish drill 505 and assignment 402.  You may submit them either on paper or in your personal Latin folder on Google Drive (the folder that I shared with you that has your name on it).


The Arval Brethren were one of eldest of the many priestly colleges of the religion of the Ancient Roman state, tending to the cult of dea Dia, a nature-goddess, and of the ancestors so as to ensure a good harvest. During the reign of the emperor Augustus, the college was used as a tool of imperial unity and control. The term ‘arval’ comes from ‘arvum’, which means ‘a ploughed field’, and reflects their agricultural origin.
