Vol. XV, no. i, January 2005

--from Richard and Allison Campbell
    Salvete omnes!
    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.
    Questions?  Suggestions?
    RSVP by the weekend prior, or February 12.
