comment Before the use of Anno Domini dating (BCE/CE), how were years numbered?
@Mark they did not use it in context of naming years from a short interval, close to the current time. But they used for instance, to describe years distant enough so that people do not remember the consuls. Also the round anniversaries from the foundation of Rome were celebrated (such as the Millenium from the foundation of Rome etc).

comment How did diplomats of the Axis powers travel and communicate among themselves in World War II
Definitely, no, -1. Diplomats of the enemy states are usually not allowed to pass the territory of their enemy's state. Only evacuation of the diplomats is possible (Soviet diplomats were evacuated from Germany and German ones from the USSR). This does not conflict with the diplomatic rules. Allowing german diplomats to pass the USSR to meet the Japanese is nonsense!

comment When was it discovered that the stars are not all lying on the same plane?
@fdb that they were too late may indirectly indicate the author thinks they came from far away. Anyway I get the point, yet the example of Sirius clearly indicates the author postulated Sirius to be inhabited in his setting.

comment How did people distinguish slaves from free people in Ancient Rome?
@TheHonRose at least there were laws to free slaves at old age and unable to work.
