  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: When Augustus tells Fabius Maximus that he's seen an omen of his coming death, an eagle circling the Temple of Agrippa and then landing on the "A" of the Temple's dedication, Fabius tells him that Augustus can't be sure of his interpretation of the augury because he's not an expert. But Augustus, like most of the pre Christian Emperors of Rome, was also Pontifex Maximus, the chief priest of Rome. As such he would be very familiar with interpreting auguries, and ought to be considered an expert on the subject.
