“One wouldn't want to consult with foreign snakes.”
John Maddox Roberts

“True to a unique tradition of Rome, all the nearby walls had been slathered with that unique institution of the Latin race: graffiti. Daubed in paint of every color were slogans such as Death to the aristocrats! and The shade of Tribune Ateius calls out for blood! and May the curse of Ateius fall on Crassus and all his friends! All of this was scrawled wretchedly and spelled worse. Rome has an extremely high rate of literacy, mostly so that the citizens can practice this particular art form.”
John Maddox Roberts, SPQR VII: The Tribune's Curse

“The Claudians," I observed, "are a family of insane hereditary criminals.”
John Maddox Roberts
