Mystery 10: solved

Ines, Annalisa and Serena tried to solve Mistery 10. Is it correct?

The greek poet who cites "nowan" in history is Homerus.

This poem is from Sappho. This is the translation in our language.
"C'è chi dice sia un esercito di cavalieri, c'è chi dice sia un esercito di fanti,
c'è chi dice sia una flotta di navi, la cosa più bella
sulla nera terra, io invece dico
che è ciò che si ama"

Love is a sentiment that has no limits or boundaries, any obstacle in the immensity and relax. 's Love, the most beautiful feelings, the one that warms the heart in the gray days of life who listens to you when you fear Him who knows when you hug of Endearment, shut inside the heart that one reaches the indefinite every heartbeat .. love is first of all feel one with the other to reach a cosmic balance where stars can be touched with the fingers and dreams come true .. Love is one of the most beautiful feelings never die.


Sonnet 24
Mine eye hath played the painter

Mine eye hath play'd the painter and hath stell'd
Thy beauty's form in table of my heart;
My body is the frame wherein 'tis held,
And perspective it is the painter's art.
For through the painter must you see his skill,
To find where your true image pictured lies;
Which in my bosom's shop is hanging still,
That hath his windows glazed with thine eyes.
Now see what good turns eyes for eyes have done:
Mine eyes have drawn thy shape, and thine for me
Are windows to my breast, where-through the sun
Delights to peep, to gaze therein on thee;
Yet eyes this cunning want to grace their art;
They draw but what they see, know not the heart.

~ William Shakespeare ~

What do you know about Athens in the Roman Period? (Cameo)

This post I'm adding is a special collaboration from a special eTwinner: Alexandra Melista from Athens! If you want to know more, please read it and have a look at the ppsx presentation about Hadrian's gate Greek pupils made.

Everybody knows about Athens in the classical period. How many people know about the city’s history in the Roman period? What do you know about the city’s plan and monuments in this era? How has the architecture of those monuments influenced modern constructions? Which Athenian monument do Vitruvius and Varro mention in their works? How is the so-called “Romanization process” reflected on the city plan and the monuments? What are its particular characteristics? What happened in 267 AD in Athens?
Imago urbis is a web quest e-twinning project about the different types of urban settlements in the Roman Empire (Italy and provinces). Written sources, mainly in Latin, are taken into account in order for the students to reflect on the connection between language and civilization. Our school (Πειραματικό Λύκειο Αγίων Αναργύρων, Athens) prepared a series of power point presentations. We have attempted to give background knowledge about the roman conquest in the Greek world and present the most important monuments in Athens in this particular era.
Students worked in teams, collected and evaluated the web material focused mainly on history and archaeology. They compared the information they gathered with the results of the research published in journals and books. They located Latin authors, who have mentioned in their work certain Athenian monuments, and they searched for English translations and lists of architecture terminology in Latin. They tried to combine texts and photos, process maps or ground plans and form concise texts in English including all information a student of their age would need to know about the topic. At the same time, they tried to guess and answer all questions a student, who does not know much about Roman Athens, would have.
You can have a look at our power point archives in this address: http://new-twinspace.etwinning.net/web/p23844/welcome you will also have the opportunity to check your knowledge with the games we have created.
Here is the power point presentation of one of the most emblematic Roman period monuments in Athens, still standing in the modern city’s center, the Gate of Hadrian:
