You dun goofed m8, should have used a provocation in the title field.
>mfw white people claim that ancient romans and greeks were some sort of nordic blondies
I would too in their place. Afterall their ancestors literally threw away their culture to get ours. They literally were culture cucked to shit, and haplogroups show that they didn't even manage to rape enought to spread their germanic seed around to balance it. Probably all those scat fetishes giving them erectile dysfunction with actual women.
this is probably the best sculpture I 've ever seen
The Cup of the Ptolemies is a Roman artifact that has been in continuous possession since it was made. It has been in human custody since the 1st century BC and was used in the coronation of the French monarchs throughout the Middle Ages.
Where can I buy a miniature of this to put on my desktop?

As far as I know nordics actually kept their language and were not cucked into speaking Latin while your fellow mediterranean subhumans all adopted it.
Germanics speak Germanic languages, Iberian/French shitskins speak Romance. This is further proof of the weakness of mediterranean lineage.
Recently found mosaic from Amphipolis Tombs.
See? I told you that you need provocations to spice up the thread, see below.
>actually kept their language
>yet they abandoned their runes
>Iberian/French shitskins speak Romance
Iberians and celts speaking a mediterranean language prove that the meddies are a weak race? What?
>Old Italic refers to any of several now extinct alphabet systems used on the Italian Peninsula in ancient times for various Indo-European languages (predominantly Italic) and non-Indo-European (e.g. Etruscan) languages. The alphabets derive from the Euboean Greek Cumaean alphabet, used at Ischia and Cumae in the Bay of Naples in the eighth century BC.
>The Germanic runic alphabet was derived from one of these alphabets by the 2nd century.
>Italo-niggers have to go literally 2000 years back in time in order to feel any pride about their country
those were the times, eh?
Here you see 10000 year old Sami art, Samis are the original indigenous people of Scandinavia.
Argentina is mostly mediterranean.
The art tells the story of how German devil giants from the south came and stole our land.
Pfff, you find better stuff in France and Spain and way older.
>People on 4chan take pride in what their people have done instead of what they themselves have done
Here you can see a brave Sami fighting a German devil giant.
You can see the benis on the archer. They are truly the ancestors of Finns.
Here you see a devil german driving a chariot.
Most likely, they are known for their rapings

>The Ludovisi Gaul Killing Himself and His Wife (sometimes called "The Galatian Suicide") is a Roman marble group depicting a man in the act of plunging a sword into his breast, looking backwards defiantly while he supports the dying figure of a woman with his left arm. It is a Roman copy of the early 2nd century AD, of a Hellenistic original, ca 230-20 BC, one of the bronze groups commissioned from Greek sculptors by Attalus I after his recent victories over the Gauls of Galatia. Other Roman marble copies from the same project are the equally famous Dying Gaul, and the less well-known Kneeling Gaul.
Devil Germans stand victorious and Samis flee north in all haste.
We have something similar.

>tfw all that will be left of these statues will be fakes at British Museum and stolen ones in private collections
All these beautiful mosaics and paintings in these two threads that literally make you feel as if you were living back then....
Yet, all they show in history books and in schools is fucking colourless and soulless statues of emperors and philosophers. WHY?????? JUST WHY????????
Why would they destroy history like that? How can anyone have any sympathy for them after that? Fucking wahhabists must be purged from existence.

Best thing we can do is send money to radical anti-islamist groups and never let on how mad it really makes us.
Because they'll just do it some more.

>you will never experience the barbarian life, raiding villages, hunting and making pagan prayers
Found this here:
The mosaic shown on this page, was discovered in the Roman villa of Suweydie, not far from Baalbek. It dates back to the third century CE and is now on display in Lebanon's National Museum in Beyrut.
It represents the Seven Sages, together with Socrates, and Calliope, the Muse of epic poetry. The combination is not unusual, and neither is the selection of the seven, with their apopthegms:
Thales of Miletus ("a guarantor ruins himself"),
Pittacus of Mytilene ("know your opportunity"),
Solon of Athens ("nothing in exess"),
Bias of Priene ("most people are bad")
were more or less canonical, while the remaining three were on a list of seven sages by Demetrius of Phaleron, a well-known author:
Cleobulus of Lindos ("moderation is best"),
Chilon of Sparta ("know thyself"), and
Periander of Corinth ("practice makes perfect").
This thread is now occupied by the barbarian horde
Go be civilized somewhere else
It seems that it doesn't have the original quotes on it.
For example, Periander's is "ΜΕΛΕΤΗ ΠΑΝ", while on the mosaic it says "ΜΕΛΕΤΗ ΕΡΓΟΝ ΑΥΞΙ", which roughly means "practice augments work".
True slavs use latin alphabet
Yes, there are quite a few differences. Τhe proper Latin transliterations are:
"Meletē pan" and "Meletē ergon auxi" (actually, in the mosaic it should have been ΑΥΞΕΙ (auxei), but I guess it is from dialect or something)
In modern it is spelled in IPA as: /meleti pan/ and /meleti erɣon afksi/
I checked the wikipage for greek alphabet, and from a quick glance most stuff is the same though (B = v, Γ = g Δ/д = d, Λ/л = l etc.), that H is annoying though since it's not the same as in latin alphabet or slavic alphabet (н = n in slavic alphabet)
Actually the story goes like this:
Η was firstly used to denote a rough breathing sound [h] (like in Latin).
ΗΑΛΜΑ instead of ΑΛΜΑ
ΚΗΑΡΑ instead of ΧΑΡΑ
At the endings of the 5th century BC, this letter changed to represent a long open E [ɛː], which was symbolized before with Ε too (there was no distinction between [ɛː] and [e] in writting).
This changed how the writing looked. For example ΗΕΛΛΕΝΕΣ ---> ΕΛΛΗΝΕΣ.
To denote now the rough breathing sound, they began to use pic related. This symbol gave rise to the spiritus asper (δασεία): ῾. For example, ἙΛΛΗΝΕΣ.
At 1st century AD, [ɛː] changed (phonologically) to an [i], and thus Η from then up until today has the same value as Ι.
About the Slavs, I don't know the exact story, but I think that this happened:
They took Ν and made it H,
and they took H and made it И.
Check also wikipedia:
>Also И = i
Yes, this is because Η turned out to sound as an I.
From calligraphy, Η became И.
>latin H in slavic alphabet is x
Well, it is not really an "h". Χ is a Voiceless Velar Fricative, while "h" is a Voiceless glottal fricative.
Χ has the same value in Greek as Cyrillic does.
In Classical Greek, it was an aspirated velar stop /kʰ/.
Then, in Koine Greek (300BC - 300AD) it became, a Voiceless Velar Fricative, and stays like that up until this day.
You can see that it was /kʰ/ in ancient in this post (>>38169847) where ΧΑΡΑ is written as ΚΗΑΡΑ.
But the way, in Greek, Χ can also can also represent a Voiceless Palatal Fricative, if it is followed by ab [e] or an [i].
In the wikipedia links above, you can click and listen how they sound.
Ah! And X is a /ks/ in Latin because:
>In ancient times, some local forms of the Greek alphabet used the chi instead of xi to represent the /ks/ sound. This was borrowed into the early Latin language, which led to the use of the letter X for the same sound in Latin, and many modern languages that use the Latin alphabet.

>A lion-headed figure, first called the lion man (German: Löwenmensch, literally "lion human"), then the lion lady (German: Löwenfrau), is an ivory sculpture that is both the oldest known zoomorphic (animal-shaped) sculpture in the world, and the oldest known uncontested example of figurative art yet discovered. The sculpture has also been interpreted as anthropomorphic, giving human characteristics to an animal, although it may have represented a deity. The figurine was determined to be about 40,000 years old by carbon dating material from the same layer in which the sculpture was found. It is associated with the archaeological Aurignacian culture. The sculpture is 29.6 cm (11.7 inches) in height, 5.6 cm wide, and 5.9 cm thick. It was carved out of mammoth ivory using a flint stone knife. There are seven parallel, transverse, carved gouges on the left arm. It is now in the museum in Ulm, Germany.
Here's another from the same culture. It's weird how the whole BMAC civilization is almost completely unknown thanks to the soviets not publishing anything on them.
>The mosaic is made of about one and a half million tiny colored tiles called tesserae, arranged in gradual curves called opus vermiculatum, (also known as "worm work," because they seem to replicate the slow motion of a crawling worm). The mosaic is an unusually detailed work for a private residence and was likely commissioned by a wealthy person or family.
>one and a half million
Imagine a world with Etruscans instead of Romans
FFS Germans, you ruined a simple and perfect symbol.
>Biggest hurdle you have when looking for how ancient "Northern" peoples (Celts, Germanics, Slavs...) lived, how their society was etc.. is that they weren't lucky enough to live next to some proto-kikes from which they could copy an alphabet. So all ancient sources are from outsiders and thus mostly heavily biased
Lel, they couldn't even write.

Someone's beaten me to it
Shame Iranics didn't have any ancient art. Or any art from any period at all, for that matter.
This made me search what languages these people spoke and I ended up reading Ossetian's wikipedia page:
