Audio Preview

One billboard outside Orange

The triumphal arch began as a simple concept: a free-standing, round-topped arch under a square entablature (superstructure). The latter served as a billboard for religious, military, or civic messages. These massive structures were not entrances; nevertheless, you were supposed to pass through and not go around. The oldest triumphal arches were built by victorious Roman generals in the 2nd century BCE, but Augustus, who was always prickly about honours and respect, decreed that only members of the imperial family would henceforth be allowed to erect them as a testament to their military prowess.

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
