Quite probably most of my readers know me by the name L. Licinius Lucullus or C. Curius Saturninus. I’m known as Lucullus in online organisation of Res Publica Romana, whose founding members I have honour to belong. As Saturninus I was known in the online organisation of Nova Roma as well as in the online university Academia Thules ad Studia Romana Antiqua et Nova. I was a citizen of Nova Roma for over ten years and founded and lead the Academia Thules also for about 10 years. For others, I’m known as Mikko Sillanpää.
I have studied classical archaeology, Latin, ancient Greek and cultural history at the University of Turku. My masters dissertation was about Ciceros Brutus and how Cicero presented historical Roman speakers compared to their political alignment.
Ancient Roman history and culture have been and continue to be a very important part of my life. Now they are to me more a research hobby, but perhaps some day I quit my daily job and dedicate all my time for it. As my daily job I currently work as a PR consultant for technology companies.
