Benja and his son Lucius at Romanum


Benja Aquila and his cute son Lucius looking great at Romanum, with their ancient clothes, and riding their black horses and smart Roman chariots.Benja Aquila, his partner Ryce and his son Lucius are members of gens Julia Family in Romanum roleplay. 

The gens Julia was one of the most ancient families at Ancient Rome. Members of that gens attained the highest state dignities. The gens is perhaps best known for Julius Caesar, the invictus general and dictator, and also for the emperor Augustus, first Roman emperor who ruled from 27 BC until his death in 14 AD.

Aquila's men are Eques or Equestrians, one of two Roman aristocratic classes besides Patricians, and they are descendants from the first knights of Roman cavalry in early Republic. The Equestrians were defined by a property threshold, but since earliest times the rank was passed from fathers to sons. The bulk of non-agricultural activities, like commerce, shipping and manufacturing industry were almost in the hands of Equestrians.

Salve citizens!

Do not lower your guard when it comes to HIV

Latest news alert that young people take fewer precautions against AIDS. According to this information, the number of cases among people younger than 24 years has increased dramatically in recent times. To this bad data should be added that over 60% of young people infected are unaware that they are infected, ignorance that increase the risk of spreading it.

Therefore is necessary to inform young people about the risks of AIDS infection and what are the methods to prevent it. In addition, is very necessary to inform them how convenient is to test for HIV because the self-knowledge that one is infected allows to start palliative treatments as soon as possible, and that specially helps to prevent the rapid spread of the disease too.

For more information on this topic, look at following links:
