comment Was the Athenian generals' trial after Arginusae a political one?
Also worth noting is the fear of reprimand that kept the general Nicias from retreating in the Sicilian expedition until it spiralled into certain disaster.

comment Are there ancient historical sources which have been permanently lost?
By discovering more of these currently, I didn't mean discover all of them, obviously there's things that are permenently lost. My question was more into whether or not we still discover ancient sources, or if what we have now is by and large what we'll always have.

comment When did steel first appear?
I disagree, I don't think this is a bad question. Yes its easily answered by checking sources so the questioner is lazy and or didn't read wikipedia properly - but the result is that a search of this website, or perhaps eventually a google search of the actual question will instantly answer it, eventually, this kind of data will be very useful in information database's.

comment How accurate and detailed were geographical maps created and updated by the Romans?

comment How accurate and detailed were geographical maps created and updated by the Romans?
I remember in Ancient Rome: Using Evidence by Pamela Bradley, the comment was made that in the leadup to the second punic war, it was unclear if the roman senate was aware the city Saguntum was below the treaty line along the Ebro (then Ibre river)
