  • It's amazing that you glaze over the context of Nero fighting against Roman nobility which could be the cause of his very negative portrayal in historical texts

One of their captured musicians they keep in the basement must have accidentally jumped the gun, now you just need to figure out which one did it and remove their window privileges for a week.

  • I have two problems with this episode, although I understand that the length of the video doesn't let it go much bigger, but anyways: there are already plenty of doubts about how much Nero was actually the tyrant he is portrayed as, since only recently people thought to question the bias of the main sources on him (that were politically invested in demeaning him) and started to look for info elsewhere. Secondly, among the gladiators there was far less bloodshed than people think, and by the time of the Colosseum it was just a sport, violent but rarely lethal and not meant to be. It wasn't even the most important or common event to happen there, this was the races. The Romans LOVED the races.
