Maecenas, the ruins of whose villa feature prominently in the present picture, was among the most celebrated patrons of the arts in classical Rome, supporting Horace and Virgil among others. His name was also a byword for luxury and indulgence. By the eighteenth century, as David Solkin has observed, Maecenas’s villa represented at once the zenith of Roman culture and the seeds of its decline.
Just another fandom blog. Mostly Gundam Wing and Shingeki no Kyojin (although I'll also blog art and whatever else catches my fancy.) My OTPs are Heero/Duo and Levi/Eren so there will be lots of that -- but every other pairing is up for grabs! Occasional tagged NSFW and I tend to bitch and curse a lot -- so sorry in advance! =P You can find common tags and where to find my writing in the links on the top left.
