The Siege of St. Petersburg (The Leningrad Blockade) was one of the most brutal acts in WWII--Germans & Finns choked off the city for over 800 days--many starved and froze to death--survivors resorted to desperate measures for warmth and food. This seems to be a background event in WWII, but it was one of the most destructive, strategic, complicated, and lethal blockades in history.

Commodus - as Hercules. The 18th Emperor of Rome. The first Emperor to be "born to the purple" - born to a sitting emperor. Terrible Emperor, but I've always loved this bust.

Marcus Aurelius Quotes
Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD. He ruled with Lucius Verus as co-emperor from 161 until Verus' death in 169. He was the last of the "Five Good Emperors", and is also considered one of the most important Stoic philosophers. During his reign, the Empire defeated a revitalized Parthian Empire; Aurelius' general Avidius Cassius sacked the capital Ctesiphon in 164. Wrote the stoic tome Meditations.
~Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121 - 180 CE), known as the last of the good emperors (reigned 161 – 169 with Lucius Verus; 169 – 177 alone; 177 - 180 with Commodus), was born in Rome (or, according to other sources, Spain) to an aristocratic family. His birth name was Marcus Annius Verus which he held until adopted by his uncle (and Emperor Hadrian’s successor) Aurelius Anontinus Pius, which made young Marcus heir to the rule of the Roman Empire~

Hadrian and Antinous

Marble busts of Hadrian and Antonius, British Museum. For me, this particular photograph really captures the private relationship between the emperor and his lover. Hadrian’s stern expression and focused glare pairs well with Antinous’ slightly lowered head, which shows his beautiful wreath of vines and grapes, associating him with the Greek god of wine, Dionysus. Hadrian serves as Antinous’ protector
Hadrian and Antinous Busts. Antinous drowned in the Nile in October 130 AD. Hadrian "wept for him like a woman."

Democritus (Greek: Δημόκριτος, Dēmokritos, "chosen of the people") (ca. 460 – ca. 370 BC) was an Ancient Greek philosopher born in Abdera, Thrace, Greece. He was an influential pre-Socratic philosopher and pupil of Leucippus, who formulated an atomic theory for the universe. His exact contributions are difficult to disentangle from those of his mentor Leucippus, as they are often mentioned together in texts.
