NEWSLETTER OF THE TWENTIETH LEGION
Vol. XV, no. i, January 2005
LUPERCALIA--from Richard and Allison Campbell
Legio XX's annual Lupercalia party is Saturday,
February 19, starting at 5pm at our house. We haven't entirely
decided on the entertainment, but have at least one novel idea.
Roman, Greek, Celtic, barbarian and even
Romano-Zena-Hollywood dress is strongly encouraged, but hobnails are
not permitted. Alas, no children. Feel free to
forward to potential recruits.
Food contributions are gladly accepted, but we will
provide a lot of food and drinks (including Mt.Dew).
If you have a particularly new piece to show off,
feel free to bring it. New for us this year are Julia
Passamonti's samian ware reproductions, and two Pompeii amphora.
Julia's amphora are coated in beeswax (not pine resin) so we will be
trying them out with red & white wines to see how they taste.
RSVP by the weekend prior, or February 12.
