About the Contest

Salvete omnes,

This year's Ludi Romani features three special contests honoring our old friend and citizen of late, Ti. Galerius Paulinus. If you don't participate in anything this go around, try one or more of these contests, and help us honor this noble man.


Contest I: Latin Epitaph

If there’s anything that the ancient Romans cared about it was that they be remembered. They wanted people to know who they were, and although they died they did not want people to forget their existence.


In this contest you will create a funerary monument epithaph (WITH TRANSLATION) for Ti. Galerius Paulinus to be used in a collection of funerary graphics for his Memorial Page on the NR wiki.


Example:


See: Sample text on the graphic at the bottom of the page at:
