Roman Moon Calendar
The Romans lived under the moon, rather than steered by the sun. Here you find an educational and decorative wall relief which fits a classroom or a living room, an extraordinary gift for the entire year!
Our replica is made according to an original lunar calendar from the 4th century AD that was excavated in Augusta Treverorum (Trier, Germany) from a Roman pottery. The lunar calendar still works today, it is made with a red brown patina in a ceramic casting. With rear wall suspension.
The days of the week are represented by Roman deities (top row). The moon on the increase and decrease (left and right) is marked with a wooden plug. At the bottom of the calendar the four seasons are shown. Minerva sits in their midst. The goddess was equated with the Greek goddess Athena in ancient Rome, she was the goddess of wisdom, tactical warfare, art, shipbuilding and guardian of knowledge.
The replica's original is preserved in the Landesmuseum Trier, Germany
