Why historical fiction is great: "Oh man, our narrator seems like a relatively good person who doesn't go along with a lot of the terrible values of those around him and... Oh! Here's where he doesn't seem too bothered by genocide! Neato!"

Goddamn. Reading about the shit Caligula actually did is like reading a fucking farce.

Caligula acts the way I do when I play a video game that gives Mr a lot of control and let's me fuck with everyone in terrible ways. Except he was real.

Someone has died of, supposedly, choking on a pear: "As was the custom in such cases, the pear tree was charged with murder and sentenced to be uprooted and burned."

Early Roman imperialism was so strange. It's not even entirely clear (to me, at least) why they wanted some of the places they conquered.

I had no idea the Romans could be so prudish. I think I had them mixed up with the Greeks. I am a stupid American. Sigh.

Hmm, so when something happens that is a secret that only a few characters know, is that Graves' speculation, or is it something confirmed/suspected by primary sources? I.e. Was Postumus (portentious name, that) a nice guy who was set up, or actually a rapist?

A page-long paragraph dedicated to Livy talking shit to another historian by way of a long anecdote. So bitchy!
