Title: Getting to Know Primigenia
URL: http://ancientgraffiti.org/about/teaching-resources/lesson-plans/lesson-plan-5-getting-to-know-primigenia/
Description:

This Latin activity references an inscription found by archeologists regarding Pompeii's neighbor, Nuceria. This inscription is a short poem that has cultural connections to Ovid's "Ars Armatoria." It also is a perfect lead into discussions on the significance of signet rings in Roman social, political, and business culture. Finally, the poem promotes discussion about the name Primigenia and its connections to other graffiti found throughout Ancient Rome. Extension activities include creating a story about Primigenia, designing signet rings, or mapping out the journey from Pompeii to Nuceria.
