Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. TOP REAR

Answer: Praetor

Praetors were first seen in historical records around 367-366 BC, and they took over from or complemented the prior Consul role:

"Let there be two with the authority of the king, and let them be called praetors, judges and consuls from their going before, judging and consulting. Let them have the supreme right of command of the military..."

(Quote from Wikipedia)
2. DATA MAIL

Answer: Dalmatia

Roughly 40 years after being enfolded into the Roman Empire (circa 32-27 BC) as part of the province of Illyricum, Dalmatia became a Roman province in its own right (along with Pannonia) in AD 10, when Illyricum was divided. It was located across the Adriatic Sea from Italia, extending inland as far as the Dinaric Alps.
3. MILD UNION

Answer: Londinium

Londinium was established by Rome as a city after the invasion of 'England' in AD 43. The city remained inhabited until the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century, after which it was largely abandoned. The site would not be reoccupied until the Anglo-Saxons arrived 400 years later.
4. SOULS COME

Answer: Colosseum

The construction of the Colosseum began in AD 72 during the reign of Vespasian, and was completed in AD 80 under Titus. With both of those emperors of the family 'Flavius,' the Colosseum carried the name Amphitheatrum Flavium.
5. A WINY PAPA

Answer: Appian Way

The Appian Way, or Via Appia in Latin, extended from Rome to the city of Brindisi, Apulia (southeast Italia). It was named for the Roman censor Appius Claudius Caecus, who began its construction as a military road in 312 BC during the Samnite Wars.
6. RAT SUMMONER

Answer: Mare Nostrum

'Mare Nostrum' was the name given to the Mediterranean Sea, which translates from the Latin as 'our sea.' By 30 BC, the name truly represented Roman dominion in the region as virtually every land bordering the Mediterranean was occupied by Roman legions.
7. USUAL ICE JARS

Answer: Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar (c. 100 - 44 BC) was a successful Roman general who played a critical role in transforming the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. After assuming control of the government in 49 BC, he was declared 'dictator in perpetuity,' but that was not to last. On the Ides of March, 44 BC, he was assassinated by Marcus Junius Brutus.
8. MUCUS IS CAR MIX

Answer: Circus Maximus

The Circus Maximus existed as a racing track from the earliest days of the Roman Republic, and received various upgrades through the centuries, seeing continuous use through the Imperial years. Originally constructed with wooden stands and seats, repeated fire damage led Emperor Trajan to rebuild it entirely with stone at the end of the 1st century.
9. SO MURDER ALUMNUS

Answer: Romulus and Remus

Romulus and Remus were the twin brothers upon whom the mythology of Rome's founding are based. Abandoned to die by a usurper to their grandfather's throne, the twins (sons of the god Mars) were raised by wolves until a shepherd and his wife found them and raised them to adulthood. Upon learning of their true heritage, they killed the usurper Amulius, returning the rightful king Numitor to the throne of Alba Longa.

They went to found their own city, but argued over the location; Romulus prevailed by killing his brother Remus, and Rome was founded on the Palatine Hill.
10. PAINT MINE BREEZY

Answer: Byzantine Empire

The Byzantine Empire grew out of the division of the Roman Empire into eastern and western regions in the year AD 285 by Diocletian. In AD 324, Constantine I transferred the capital from Nicomedia to Byzantium, renaming it Constantinople. It only became a true 'Empire' of its own upon the death of Emperor Theodosius in AD 395, an event that truly divided the Roman Empire into two separate parts.
