I know it has nothing to do with the topic. But you mentioning this part reminded me the uneasiness I feel each time I think of the practices of the Romans.
I must have been there at some point because I don't feel much love or respect for ancient Rome (even almost had a panic attack when I was in Rome)(hated it).
