*Spurius pondered for a while*
I am surprised you haven't put forward the building of Minerva's shrines Pallas. It is of my opinion that instead of building shrines everywhere, we should specialise more. For example why build many shrines to Vulcan, when we could build a temple for him. I would think Messana would be a good place for this, due to its proximity to the god's home. And maybe we should build a temple of mars in Rome, as we are his children, not the Capuans. My proposal, would surely cost less, and leave building forces in many of the cities free to improve the infrastructure, and I think my proposal would appease the Gods more, why would a god want many insignificant shrines when he could have an impressive temple in his name, with dedicated priests to him and him alone. As for your second proposal I agree whole heatedly, it is time Rome's conquests start to pay off!
