Sometimes you hear something from an ancient story and then realize….heyyy, that sounds familiar. Here are some weirdly intersting connections that I’ve found. This will be an occasional, but ongoing, series.
Capitol Hill, Washington DC, USA.
Everyone in modern western culture has heard of this area. It’s a metonym for the US Congress. The Capiral Hill Building is very prominent and very recognizable. Especialy the round dome with the pillars all around it.
Did you know that there was an area called Capitoline Hill in Rome? It too had promient buildings with pillars in them and considentally was the place where King Tarkin tried to avoid a prophecy on famine but instead caused the prophecy to come true. Related to THIS POST.
I’m hoping to keep this little series going over the years. I find it rather intersting.
Did you know that the Capitol Hill area has a hidden Owl shape in it?!
