1. Background On The Hexagonal Honeycomb Conjecture

Extractions: Background on the Hexagonal Honeycomb conjecture In 1994, D. Weaire and R. Phelan improved on Lord Kelvin's candidate for the least-area way to partition space into regions of unit volume. Contrary to popular belief, even the planar question remains open. -Frank Morgan, Trans. AMS, Vol. 351, No. 5, p1753, 1999. Let T be a tile of unit area such that the plane may be tiled by congruent copies of it. Steinhaus asks if the perimeter length of T is least when T is a regular hexagon. More generally, if the plane is tiled by bounded tiles, not necessarily congruent, but all of a diameter of at least D0, say, does the regular hexagonal tiling minimize the maximum (perimeter length of T)^2/(area of T) taken over all tiles T in the tiling? The 3-dimensional analog of this is likely to be challenging: What is the tile T of unit volume and least surface area that permits a tiling of R^3 by congruent copies of T? -Hallard T. Croft, Kenneth J. Falconer, Richard K. Guy, Unsolved Problems in Geometry (Problem C15). Springer-Verlag, 1991. Bees are not of a solitary nature, as eagles are, but are like human beings... They have three tasks: food, dwelling, toil; and the food is not the same as the wax, nor the honey, nor the dwelling. Does not the chamber in the comb have six angles, the same number as the bee has feet? The geometricians prove that this hexagon inscribed in a circular figure encloses the greatest amount of space.

Extractions: (*=significant apparent disagreement in sources) Date BCE Events Sources Herod plunders the wealthy of Jerusalem in order to give gifts to Antonius and others; he kills forty-five of the leading members of the Antigonus' supporters. He rewards those who supported him during the siege, in particular the Pharisee Pollion and his disciple Samaias, who advised the people during the siege to open the gates to Herod. (This same Pollion was the one who spoke during Herod's trial, and foretold that, if Herod's life was spared, Herod would one day persecute Hyrcanus and the members of the Synhedrion .) Antonius executes Antigonus in Antioch by beheading him, in order to strengthen Herod's hold on the kingship.

Extractions: Guy Clark's Ancient Coins and Antiquities GREEK BRONZE COINS Last update: 03 May 2004 (I have attempted to scan many of the bronzes to convey a better idea of what they look like. Please note that some have come out with the color off somewhat. I hope to improve this as I learn more about scanning techniques. Few Greek bronzes are of known denomination and so most are designated by a number following AE which indicates the diameter of the coin in millimeters. Thus a coin listed as AE15 is 15mm in diameter. For those who are metrically challenged, there are approximately 24mm per inch.) SPECIAL Miscellaneous Greek Bronze Coins. If, after looking at the selection of bronzes below, you still can't decide where to start, I have a number of miscellaneous Greek bronzes from many areas. These coins will average Fine or better condition with minimal problems such as centering, pitting, etc., so, while not choice specimens, they are not ugly either. These coins can be a good starting point or, if you are only planning to have one representative example, will suffice for an inexpensive type coin. Most are from Syria, Phoenicia, Thrace, Macedonia, and various mints in Asia Minor and date from the 4th to the 1st Century BC. If you order more than one, I will provide variety.

B. XVIII. ch. 5. sect. 4; and Of the War, B. I. ch. 28. sect. 4; in Havercamp's edition, p. 336; and Spanheim, lb. p. 402405; and Reland, Paleslin. Part I. p. 178, 176. This is now wanting. Pheroras's wife, and her mother and sister, and Doris, Antipater's mother. His wife, her mother, and sister. It seems to me, by this whole story put together, that Pheroras was not himself poisoned, as is commonly supposed; for Antipater had persuaded him to poison Herod, ch. v. sect. 1, which would fall to the ground if he wore himself poisoned; nor could the poisoning of Pheroras serve any design that appears now going forward; it was only the supposal of two of his freed-men, that this love-potion, or poison, which they knew was brought to Pheroras's wife, was made use of for poisoning him; whereas it appears to have been brought for her husband to poison Herod withal, as the future examinations demonstrate. That the making of images, without an intention to worship them, was not unlawful to the Jews, see the note on Antiq. B VIII. ch. 7. sect. 5.

Extractions: ITHACIUS CLARUS. See P RISCILLIAN , P RISCILLIANISTS ITUREA: A region named in Luke iii. 1 . The name of a people, "the Itureans," is older than "Iturea" as the name of a region, and is to be connected with the Jetur of Gen. xxv. 15 , a son of Ishmael denoting a nomadic stock of the Syro-Arabian desert, whose home, according to the Genesis passage, was in the neighborhood of Teima on the western border of Najd, between Medina and the oasis of Jauf. I Chron. v. 18-22 tells of a victorious campaign of the Hebrews of the East-Jordan land against Jetur and other nomads in pre-exilic times, which shows that Jetur must have changed its place of abode to the neighborhood of the Jabbok; but the mention in Luke iii. 1 can have nothing to do with this passage. Aristobulus I. (105-104 B.C. ) fought the Itureans and annexed part of their territory (Josephus, Ant. XIII., xi. 3), and Strabo (XVI., ii. 10, 18) in Roman times locates them on the plain of Massyas (Marsyas) between Laodicea and Chalcis, i.e., in C?le-Syria (q.v.), and he is corroborated by an inscription of Quirinius (Mommsen in Ephemeris epigraphica

Non è un tentativo di creare una vera nazione virtuale tipo Novaroma, con tanto di votazioni, ecc.(non ne sarei capace), ma un riferimento per i pagani tradizionali che si trovano ancora in Italia. In teoria vorrebbe esserlo anche per quelli sparsi nei territori dellOrbe Romano, ma sarebbero necessarie traduzioni nelle loro lingue natìe alle quali, al momento, non posso provvedere. La Repubblica dei Quiriti Romani non è altro che lantica Roma repubblicana: ciò non significa però che possano farne parte solo i seguaci della religione romana. Al contrario sono invitati a farne parte tutti i pagani tradizionali, rifiutando assurde contrapposizioni tra i popoli della nostra terra, e ricordando che anche nell'Italia antica, se il culto ufficiale dello Stato era romano, quello delle singole città, e ancor di più quello privato, era in parte o in tutto locale.

La statua bronzea, alta più di 35 metri, raffigurava Nerone con attributi solari e si ispirava, con ogni probabilità, al colosso di Rodi. L'imperatore era rappresentato nudo e con il braccio sinistro piegato per sorreggere una sfera, il destro proteso in avanti. Sul capo portava una corona composta da sette raggi, lunghi ben sei metri ciascuno. Le uniche raffigurazioni che ci rimangano dell'immane colosso sono state ritrovate su alcune monete degli imperatori Gordiano III ed Alessandro Severo.

http://members.fortunecity.com/kokhuitan/greek.html

Extractions: The Greeks are responsible for initial explosion of Mathematical ideas. For several centuries, Greek mathematics reign the mathematical world, with great advances in Number Theory, the Theory of Equation, and in particular Geometry. The first great Greek mathematician is Thales of Miletus (624-547 BC). He brought the knowledge of Egyptian Geometry to the Greeks and discovered several theorems in elementary Geometry. He predicted a Solar Eclipse in 585 BC and could calculate the height of a pyramid, as well as how far a ship is from land. One of his pupils, the Greek philosopher, Anaximander of Miletus (610-546 BC), is considered the founder of Astronomy. Perhaps the most prominent Greek mathematicians is Pythagoras of Samos (569-475 BC). His ideas were greatly influenced by Thales and Anaximander. His school of thought practiced great secrecy and he (and his followers, called Pythagoreans) believe everything in the world can be reduced to numbers. This idea stemmed from Pythagoras' observations in Music, Mathematics and Astronomy. E.g. Pythagoras noticed that vibrating strings produce harmonics in which the lengths of the strings are in ratios of whole numbers. In fact, he contributed greatly to the mathematical theory of music. He had the notion of Odd and Even Numbers, Triangular Numbers, Perfect Numbers, etc. In particular, he is well known today for his Pythagoras Theorem. Although this theorem is known to the Babylonians and Chinese long before Pythagoras, he seemed to be the first person to provide a proof of it.
