comment Parable of the broken window and 1929 crisis
Interesting debate although I had to reach for the dictionary 3 times during the first paragraph alone!

comment Why is Christopher Columbus credited for “discovering” America?
That is not actually correct, the viking Thorfinnur Karlsefni traveled to America to settle the country. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…)

comment Do there exist busts/statues of all the roman emperors until the fall of the West?
That bust of Aurelian is usually attributed to be of his predecessor Claudius II (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudius_Gothicus) (also it makes him look suspiciously like Probus: everyhistory.org/images21/62.jpg and commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/… )

3 emperors with busts removed, one removed because he wasn't actually an emperor.

I'm pretty amazed to see that no statue of Aurelian exists, especially considering his reputation during and after his rule.

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.
