Book VIII is done.

I posted a while ago on the movie three hundred. I saw it tonight and I liked it. If you are a historical purist, squeamish, or overly pc, you probably won’t like it though. Everything is kind of exaggerated and some things are outright made up but the basic plot is factual. It’s based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, not a history textbook. I thought it was visually stunning and it was really nice to not have big stars in the movie. Just my 2 cents.
I justed added two bronze coins to the gallery. They are coins of the emperors Constantius II and Constans. When their father, Constantine the Great, died in 337 AD, his three sons took over as emperors. Their brother, Constantine II, was the third emperor.
