Roman statue showing Priapus – the god of fertility. The distinguishing feature of the deity is the great erect penis, which was to symbolize the economic well-being of the owners of the House of the Vettii in Pompeii.
IMPERIUM ROMANUM needs your support
Your financial help is needed, in order to maintain and develop the website. Even the smallest amounts will allow me to pay for further corrections, improvements on the site and pay the server.
I believe that I can count on a wide support that will allow me to devote myself more to my work and passion, to maximize the improvement of the website and to present history of ancient Romans in an interesting form.
The site exists since 2004 and during that time I managed to collect a lot of materials about ancient Rome.
I have repeatedly corrected and modified the website to maximally adapt the navigation to the needs of visitors. I think, finally, I managed to achieve it.
From the early beginning, on the home page, there was my own thought – in my opinion great:
To the glory of Caesar and the Roman people, go the way of victory, the way of the great Empire! This sentence encourages me to work more on the website.
