Oh, that is just lame! Is this where the Assembley, Senate, or Consuls meet?
Here you go, doric columns... ... they are a-doric-able! Haha... get it adoricable,... adorable! Its a pun!
I thought Romans were more serious. Be honest Tiber, are you an upper class patrician or a lower class plebeian?
I am a Patrician, of course. Don't you see my fancy clothes, my shiny gold buttons, and no poor plebeian would have this much free time to tour around with a goddess and share such charm and humour.
You are harsh, oh goddess! No more jokes. The senate meets in the forum, a much grander place than this. My father is a great senator. Only patricians and the most wealthy plebeians may join the senate. My father has read and memorised the 12 bronze tablets of Roman law. He is very serious! I am suppose to be training for the Roman military, but I am a lover not a fighter.
Once Rome fought against outsiders, but lately we are fighting against each other. In the battle of Actium, the Roman leader Octavian destroyed the forces of the Roman leader Mark Antony. It was a war fought because of love.
That is terrible! That is the war that happened after Julius Caesar was assassinated. Rome entered into a civil war and a powerful group was formed called the Second Triumvirate -- Octavian, Mark Antony, and Lepidus were the leaders. They could have made peace, but Mark Antony left the group because of love. Cleopatra had travelled to meet him in the city of Tarsus. She was dressed as Venus, the goddess of love. Mark Antony fell in love with her and betrayed his friends. I remember this! They had twin babies and were married, right?
