Overview

Roman country seats.
In ancient times, when the city of Rome was at the height of its power and splendor, it was the custom, as it is in fact now with the inhabitants of wealthy capitals, for the principal families to possess, in addition to their city residences, rural villas for summer retreats, which they built in picturesque situations, at a little distance from the city, sometimes in the interior of the country, and sometimes upon the sea-shore. There were many attractive places of resort of this nature in the neighborhood of Rome. Among them was Antium.
Antium.
Situation of the promontory of Antium.
Antium was situated on the sea-coast about thirty miles south of the Tiber. A bold promontory here projects into the sea, affording from its declivities the most extended and magnificent views on every side. On the north, looking from the promontory of Antium, the eye follows the line of the coast away to the mouth of the Tiber; while, on the south, the view is terminated, at about the same distance, by the promontory of Circe, which is the second cape, or promontory, that marks the shore of Italy in going southward from Rome. Toward the interior, from Antium, there extends a broad and beautiful plain, bounded by wooded hills toward the shore, and by ranges of mountains in the distance beyond. On the southern side of the cape, and sheltered by it, was a small harbor where vessels from all the neighboring seas had been accustomed to bring in their cargoes, or to seek shelter in storms, from time immemorial.

    R

    A small brownish-grey tom came in, his ears flat and his blue eyes wary. His body was thin and weak-looking and his tail was rat-like, and he wasn't handsome in any aspect, no matter how you looked at him. His face was long and he had a scar that ran across his left eye, leaving it in a permenant squint.

    To Midbightclan

    Ok i dont rp in any clans right now. But saying you are better than a certain clan and putting them down is wrong. You can say your the best, but targetting a certain person or clan is mean. Therefore, i will never join this clan. Not when theres at least one cyberbully here. This is the last you will hear from me on these results, so dont bother replying. Sincerly, Lunamoon.
