    1. Not at all. It had Latin writing, and Roman numerals. The details were provded on a translation board nearby, in Italian and English. But it did have a carved representation of the man, in the gladiator uniform of a Retarius, carrying a trident and net. He was apparently quite famous in his time.

  1. In 90 AD, there were probably a few rich Roman aristocrats still alive who had been born in BC. I’ve been to Pompeii and Herculaneum, two fabled cities buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. I’ve also been inside the crater, and wore out a pair of boots walking around the volcano beneath the rim.
