comment Latest recorded government sanctioned use of scaphism or cyphonism (torture)?
I was reading the Anabasis (Xenophon) article on Wikipedia, then clicked through to Battle of Cunaxa, and in that article it noted that Mithridates was "executed by scaphism." Not knowing what scaphism was I researched it, which also led to cyphonism.

comment Was there a noble cause to Genghis Khan's campaign?
The book "Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World" portrays Genghis Khan in a more positive light than traditional Western works. Unfortunately I have not read it. Apparently the last part of the book argues that Genghis Khan's reputation as an "excellent, noble king" was corrupted in the West during the Age of Enlightenment: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Where did the Romans store their cash?
@user357320 - That is when merchant banks came to be, which are banks in the modern sense of the word: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merchant_bank According to the 19th century work "The History And Principles of Banking" by James William Gilbart the first "bank" was established in Venice in 1157.
