I took Latin in high school (c1995, United States) and each student in my class had a subscription to a Latin-language newspaper. I think it was published once a month or maybe bi-weekly, and it was intended for students taking the language. Is anyone familiar enough to recognize this and remember the name? I would like to find out if it is still publishing.

    It's worth noting, Google is not much help as "latin-language newspaper" tends to lead to Latin American resources. Neat, but not helping here. Commented Feb 19, 2020 at 0:17

  • The Times(UK) each Saturday has a Latin Crossword (main paper, last page).

In the grand tradition of things always being in the last place you left them, despite searching for several days, I found the answer on my own a few hours after I posted this. The newspaper was called Pompeiiana and was published from 1974 to 2003. Apparently the entire back catalog is available, legally, online at http://pompeiiana.blogspot.com/.
