  PRAENESTE - LoveToKnow Article on PRAENESTE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
It was probably in 82 B.C. that the city was removed from the hill-side to the lower ground at the Madonna dell Aquila, and that the temple of Fortune was enlarged so as to include much of the space occupied by the ancient city.
From an inscription found in 1907 it appears that Sulla delegated the foundation of the new colony to M. Terentius Varro Lucullus, who was consul in 73 B.C. Under the empire Praeneste, from its elevated situation and cool salubrious air, became a favorite summer resort of the wealthy Romans, whose villas studded the neighborhood.
Excavations made, especially since 1855, in the ancient necropolis, which lay on a plateau surrounded by valleys at the foot of the hill, and of the town, have yielded important results for the history of the art and manufactures of Praeneste.

 Anaxagoras
Pericles, who was about five years younger than Anaxagoras, was a military and political leader who was successful in both developing democracy and building an empire which made Athens the political and cultural centre of Greece.
In about 450 BC Anaxagoras was imprisoned for claiming that the Sun was not a god and that the Moon reflected the Sun's light.
He records information about the painting of stage scenes for the plays which were performed in Athens and says that Anaxagoras wrote a treatise on how to paint scenes so that some objects appeared to be in the foreground while other appeared in the background.

 The Galileo Project | Chronology | Gregorian Calendar
In the reign of Numa[4] two months were added to the year, January at the beginning and February at the end; and this arrangement continued till the year 452 BC., when the Decemvirs[5] changed the order of the months, and placed February after January.
The months now consisted of twenty-nine and thirty days alternately, to correspond with the synodic revolution of the moon [full moon to full moon], so that the year contained 354 days; but a day was added to make the number odd, which was considered more fortunate, and the year therefore consisted of 355 days.
The most famous college was the decemviri legibus scribendis, or the "composers of the Twelve Tables," who ruled Rome absolutely for a few years around 450 BC.
