MULTOS ET FOELICES

MMDCCLXVIII A.V.C.

As Monty Python would have it: ROMANVS EVNT DOMVS  (i.e., “People called Romani, they go, the house.”)

Siorcanna

MULTOS ET FOELICES ROMA

FELICIEM DIES NATALIS ROMA

FORTUNA DIES NATALIS ROMA

(or whatever “Happy Birthday” is in classical Latin.)

Today is the 2,768th birthday of the Eternal City, when Romulus plowed out the pomerium, the city’s sacred boundaries.
