"The fifth soldier doesn't have a watch." was marked as wrong. While I'm sure wristwatches didn't exist during the Roman Empire, I'm sure New York, Boston, the Euro, etc didn't either.

So into LLPSI that I thought this was Quintus, a soldier.

Wow, I looked that up. Looks fascinating. Plus, the author has a surname very similar to my father's, so (according to A. J. Jacobs) he is probably my great uncle, eight times removed, or something like that. =D

Judging by your language achievements on this platform, that is probably true!
