This dramatic event, counted as Seleucus' first regal year, was continued as the Seleucid Era, the first continuous count of time in world chronology, soon to inspire the similar Arsacid Era of Parthia. There is also the residual uncertainty about Hellenistic dating. Bickerman, for instance, positively asserted that Seleucus reconquered Babylon "in August of " [Chronology of the Ancient World, Cornell University Press,p. Seleucus] was given a thousand men by Ptolemy and set out from Palestine to Babylonia" [Dividing the Spoils, Oxford,p.
By citing the date and exact time it might be possible for a reader to view the history of changes and find the actual article cited as it existed at that point in time. The top esoteric point to be made here is a rebuttal of the bonehead who posted on wakipedia that the Jacques-Louis David painting "Oath of the Horatii" is the origin of the stiff-armed salute.
Lots of people repeat that mindlessly because they see it on wakipedia. The bonehead who originally posted the horatii lie did it in an effort to cover-up discoveries by the noted symbologist Dr.
Rex Curry concerning the pledge of allegiance as the origin of the stiff-armed salute. That and other points are examples of the deliberateness of misrepresentation in the wakipedia posts, intended to mislead people into believing that Francis Bellamy author of the Pledge of Allegiance was inspired by the David painting, when there is no evidence at all of that, just the opposite.
Wikipedia liars also never mention that government schools required the salute and Bellamy's chanting by law daily for three decades and persecuted anyone who refused before German National Socialists did the same, because they want everyone to believe it was simply the Horatii painting that inspired German socialsists, and there was no impact from the USA's government schools that required the salute and Bellamy's chanting by law daily for three decades and persecuted anyone who refused.
Hitler, Bellamy, David mentions it at all in regard to any "roman salute gesture. The Roman myth came from the Pledge of Allegiance.
Francis Bellamy never used the term "Roman salute" as the term did not exist at the time he wrote the pledge, and he did not reference David, and he specifically explained how the salute developed: Bellamy did not even intend for the palm do be down, but in practice it became palm down due to the disinterest of children forced to perform the robotic daily chanting they merely extended the military salute out toward the flag, without turning the palm up.
It had nothing to do with any "Roman salute" myth, because the myth did not exist at the time that Bellamy wrote the pledge and for some time thereafter.

The "Roman salute" myth came from the Pledge of Allegiance, not vice versa. There is more on that topic in one or more of the links below for example, Francis Bellamy grew up in Rome, N. The Horatii myth that the "Roman salute" came from the painting "Oath of the Horatii" exists because liars on wakipedia used to claim that the salute actually was an ancient Roman salute and lots of people repeated that myth and still do repeat that myth because of wakipedia and because they haven't been updated on the newer Horatii lie on wakipedia.
Curry pointed out the cupidity of the wakipedians and the falsity of the Roman salute myth to the point that it became so embarrassingly obvious that they could not persist in re-posting the ancient Roman salute myth any longer, and they could not dispute Dr.
The wikipedia liars deliberately looked for another explanation, in an effort to pre-date Bellamy as the source. The liars on wakipedia saw the Horatii painting, saw people with their arms extended outward in the painting, and they fabricated and substituted the "Horatii myth" for their "ancient Roman salute myth "substitute" is an accurate word because they did the same thing when they claimed that the stiff-armed salute actually was an ancient Roman salute: Anyway, now you know some things that are essentially not known to almost anyone else on the planet.
Here is an article recently sent to another boob who repeated the Horatii myth because of wakipedia it repeats some of the points above.
This is posted to correct errors in the January 18, article "Questions Answered: Wikipedia Wakipedia has spread the lie that the gesture came from the Jacques Louis-David painting Oath of the Horatii. That myth originated on wakipedia in an effort to cover-up the discoveries of the noted symbologist Dr.
Even David never used the term "Roman salute" as the concept of a "Roman salute" did not even exist during David's life check the etymology of the term "Roman salute" -a check that is glaringly never referenced by wakipedia nor by anyone who repeats the Horatii myth.
The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the Nazi salute and the swastika -although an ancient symbol- was used to represent crossed S-shapes for "socialism" under the National Socialist German Workers Party.
Francis Bellamy cousin of author Edward Bellamy was a socialist in the Nationalism movement and authored the Pledge of Allegiancethe origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted much later by the National Socialist German Workers Party.Hellenistic Monarchs down to the Roman Empire.
The Hellenistic Age suffers from some of the same disabilities as Late Antiquity, i.e. it doesn't measure up to the brilliance of the Golden Age of Greece and of late Republican and early Imperial Rome.
Words and Spectacle in Shakespeare’s "Titus Andronicus" and Julie Taymore’s "Titus" - Shakespeare’s earliest tragedy is a play infamous for its gore and spectacular violence. By examining Livy’s The Early History of Rome, we can identify these traits through roman patterns of behavior and the foundation myths that their nation is built upon. The romans repeatedly display not only an overdeveloped personal sense of pride, but an exceptional pride in their nation – taking precedence over even family loyalty.
