There's more to Juno's disgust of Aeneas and the Trojans than just the fate of Carthage, her beloved city. There's the judgment of Paris, the fact that one of the founders of the Trojans is an illegitimate son of Jupiter, among other reasons. It's going to be very hard for Aeneas to found the Roman race!

Just a week ago, I released a tool that helps you focus on core Latin vocabulary, the most common words that show up in Latin. I'm happy to announce a update to the tool that gives a user rating (a time independent measure), item analysis, and correct answers. Enjoy!
Starting next week, I will be releasing a new series called "91 Rules", in which I will review the most basic and essential parts of Latin grammar. Stay tuned!

Hannibal always remained an enemy of the Roman people, even after his defeat at Zama by Scipio Africanus. But when he offered his help to Antiochus III in Syria, he also brought with him his sly wit.
The Romans had many different ways to find out the future. Both the augurium and the auspicium divined the future by looking at the flights of birds. What do these words mean, and where do they come from?
