SPQR Blues: Blues 4 part LXXV


Under the Veil (aka Emo Bride)
For all the research I did on sorting modern from ancient, mediaeval from antiquity, and very ancient antiquity from Roman Italy, very little of the marriage ceremony actually ended up in this comic :) When Iusta was bewildered by Ati Nacna's Etruscan, it was depicted in the Etruscan alphabet. I've never been to either Etruscan School or Hebrew School, so any corrections will be gladly added....

I've had to bear in mind that some customs or actions that seem absolutely intrinsic and indispensable today might have only just been developing during this chaotic time in reaction to the devastations of the decade, or might have developed later as a way to recall aspects that were common parts of the general living environment then, and did not need to be called out.

But enough of that. A wedding.
