Tomis (aka Constanța, oldest still populated city in Romania) / the site of Ovid's exile / carmen et error /  a poem and a mistake /exiled in 8 AD - died 8 years later / A statue of Ovid stands in the Ovid Square (Piața Ovidiu) of Constanța, in front of the History Museum (the former City Hall)

     fell victim to my own sharp wit.

     the traditional prayer: 'May Ovid's bones lie soft!
