When speaking of "ancient Greek", that usually means Attic. During Nero's reign, it would have been Koine.

OK I can't be the only person who first read the headline as "ancient Greek porn"...

Nero has a wife that is named sabina
and it was said that there was no finer
her husband was nero
but she was the hero
for she lent to the legion her vagina

She had huge...tracts of land.

Even back then lazy Muslim socialists loved a guy who destroys their country. Exactly like Obama today.

Roses are red,
their leaves are greener,
She's pretty hot,
I'd Poppaea her Sabina.

I dunno why Greeks and Egyptians would love to see Rome burn.

Your rear and vagina

Just think how many more ancient texts we'd have if the muslims hadn't held the world's largest book BBQ at the great library of Alexandria.

I thought it was more fun to blame it on the bankruptcy, decay and eventual destruction of the Roman Empire, but whatever floats your boat.

Pfft, its not fun to tell the truth, you have to spin it into someone else's fault

The 1642 opera by Monteverdi "The Coronation of Poppea" is one of the best operas ever. The whole thing is on youtube with eminenly fappable Danielle de Neise as Poppea and it is pretty close to being porn.

Oh yeah, every single person in the opera is an immoral creep. Except maybe Seneca, who is forced to kill himself by Nero.

Not the first burning (it was rebuilt and many texts survived that one) the 2nd burning several centuries later

There once was a wife of Nero,
Who cooked every night for her hero.
Ignoring the itchin' she fiddled him in the kitchen
And wound up with a burning in her pot.

So, no one was really talking about Muslims, the Dark Ages or Alexandria before you came in here. Your entire purpose for posting your statement was to make an inflammatory comment about stuff that was completely off-topic. Explain to me why you're not trolling, please? Explain to me why this behavior should not be ridiculed and properly dealt with?

So something even more completely off-topic than would have been expected at first?

Well, if you know your history, it was the Christians that burned the library. Because it was not Christian enough.

The Muslims, on the other hand, did save some documents, amongst them Vitruvious guidelines for architecture.

Sabina, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Sabina, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home

So Amr ibn al `Aas was an Xtian, I'm sure that is news to him.

Actually it was discovered a hundred years ago. They just got around to translating it.
