    1. That would be the reasonable thing, but no...
    2. Yes but what was the epigram?
    3. In 420 there were no "Legions" in the classical sense, that's why I said units...
    4.Yes, an unfinished sonata for cello
    5.Yes

    Nope, not a Ju-52. 2, 4,5 correct. The epigram is quite fun in greek since it's obvious it is aimed at the Spartans...



    Maybe 3 is confusing.
    3: ...or how many men approximately? (the nearest approximation wins!)

    My information comes from Heather, "A new history of Rome and the barbarians" and mentions a much lower number for 420, according to the Imperial catalogues.

    Anyway, I consider this question probably "over the top" for here, so it's a tie between Cato and cpt Blackadder since you both had 3 out of 5 right.

    Heather's number is 181 "units' with a total of 90.000 troops...

    I think the Captain is more deserving than I am; afterall, he did answer the questions (2/3) first. By all means, let Blackadder ask the questions and receive the rep.

    Oh, and great questions Garb... they were hard as Hell!
