    Right, pretty sure the Ottomans wore turbans and not horned helmets. They were also equipped with scimitars and not axes. Furthermore, the expression of Constantine XI's head is almost certainly correct, but the emperor was not beardless. Actually, moustaches and goatees had become pretty fashionable since Phocas. Or is this supposed to be a "historically authentic™" depiction of his facial hair? Cookiegod, you were judged by the Tribunal of Historical Accuracy and found Creative Assembly.

    Those are some strong ankles you've got there Cookie. Why does Roma look like he's enjoying this? His face is all like: "yea baby give me more hmmmm." Truly a masterpiece worthy of the Halls of Louvre. Toss that piece of called the Mona Lisa in the bin and put this in the spotlight.

    Sold! To the green gentleman in the beige robes. The one with the lovable smile. You can come and collect your item at the end of the auction between 21:00 and 21:30. Don't be late or miss your chance of acquiring this fine piece of toiletry.

    No, the future passive participle/gerundium of deleo when referring to a feminine word is delenda.
    Roma delenda est = Roma is to be destroyed. Rom muss zerstört werden.
    Deleta on the other hand is the perfect participle, combining this past with the future erit gives a grammatically correct though very weird sentence:
    Roma deleta erit = Roma is to have been destroyed. Rom wird zerstört gewesen sein.

    I suffered through many years of Latin. Shame on you for questioning my divine knowledge. I speak ex cathedra always except when I lie.

    Ok, you are talking about the nominal gerundive, but why has the Roman already lost his head then?^^

    7 years of Latin aka big latinum have left tracks.^^

    This man knows how to Latin!

    I am moved by this nonverbal interpretive dance you've done demonstrating the end of the Roman Empire. Tragic, but moving. And by that I mean the quality of your performance was a tragedy and your body happened to be moving simultaneously.

    There was only one man who could have saved Rome after Honorius, and his name was Officer Doofy.
