I, Sweet William The Scot, want to show you the Big Guy!
Besides murals in Cincinnati we have lots of statues.
Well look I only measure up to his ankles.
Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus (519 BC – 430 BC)
In one hand he holds the symbol of power the fasces in the other hand he holds the plow.
Hold on to that Fasces big guy. If you drop it I will be history.
Cincinnatus was regarded by the Romans, especially the aristocratic patrician class, as one of the heroes of early Rome and as a model of Roman virtue and simplicity.
Named in his honor is the town of Cincinnato, in Lazio, Italy. In the United States he was honored with the name of the town of Cincinnatus, New York and the Society of the Cincinnati an order of Revolutionary War Officers, which in turn lent its name to the city of Cincinnati, Ohio.
If you follow the path away from Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus and look down where I am walking, you will see things stamped in the center sidewalk blocks.
You get a history lesson. Why this block says ~
415 Million years ago Agnathans, small jawless fishes with body armor invade lakes and rivers.
The path is a time line of what has been here before me.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
Sweet William The Scot
