Honorious: livius.org/ho-hz/honorius/honorius.html and Gratian: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gratian_Trier.JPG Joannes wasn't actually an emperor was he?

comment Do there exist busts/statues of all the roman emperors until the fall of the West?
Full statues or bust. Essentially an artwork with recognizable facial features, i.e. something more than a roman coin. "Less than a year" means just that.

comment Why did the scutum fall out of use?
It is interesting to note that Trajan's column features both scutum and rounded shields fighting side by side.

comment When did aircraft carriers eclipse battleships as the “King of the seas”?
It wasn't purely about being able to move merchant ships around but also being able move naval firepower freely around. Naval power that could help with amphibious landings and provide a mobile airfield for support.

comment Effects of deliberately creating inflation to eliminate domestic debt
@TED But the original question ask about the results of tackling domestic debt with inflation. The difference between pre war Germany and for example the US in the 80s is that in the latter case all (or almost all) debt was in USD (i.e. their own currency). Trying to print your way out of external debt will certainly lead to a highly devalued currency like we saw in Germany and staggering inflation. The US could still do that today but most other nations cannot as they are straddled with with external debt (debt in another currency) that will not devalue with domestic inflation.

comment Effects of deliberately creating inflation to eliminate domestic debt
How does this relate to the original question? Wasn't the hyperinflation caused directly by external debt, not domestic?

comment Where did the Romans store their cash?
That's very interesting. Wondering why the common assumption is that banking began during the Italian renaissance?
